Transferring an existing domain name involves changing the domain name registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS record modifications through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most generic and country-code domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few basic steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a security option, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry organizations. It is a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to register 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 the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a web hosting plan from us, you’ll exercise total command over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered here, on the condition that the particular TLD extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock symbol that you will see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will permit you to modify that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can start the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the exact same steps.
