Transferring an existing domain entails changing the registrar company that handles the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS modifications through the new domain registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most universal and country-specific top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even try to register your domain. The domain lock can be removed 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 Cloud Web Hosting

With a Linux cloud web hosting service from our company, you will exercise full control over your domains through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through us, as long as the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will enable you to edit that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can initiate the procedure instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to complete the exact same steps.
