Transferring an active domain name involves switching the company that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS updates through the new domain name registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most universal and country-specific TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain involves several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer process, so no one can even attempt to snatch your domain name. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

If you order a Linux website hosting package from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a mini padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you’ll just have to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with our company is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you’ll notice a padlock icon if the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you will find out if the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will be updated right away and you will be able to start the domain transfer without needing to wait for the change to appear on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
