Transferring an already registered domain involves changing the domain registrar that provides the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS entry updates through the new domain registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most gTLD and ccTLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few basic steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to snatch your domain name. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this functionality are locked by default when they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
If you purchase a shared web hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you’ll just need to click once more and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different admin consoles.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is amazingly easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will see all your domains in the Registered Domains section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock-like icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect momentarily, you will be able to start the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and decide not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
