Transferring an active domain involves changing the registrar company that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record modifications through the new domain registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a safety feature, which is being embraced by more and more registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer process, so nobody can even attempt to snatch your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domain names that support this functionality are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting from our company, you’ll exert absolute command over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through our company, provided that the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock sign that you will find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will allow you to update that status. In case you want to transfer a domain name to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the exact same steps.
