Transferring an active domain name entails switching the domain registrar that provides the registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS entry modifications through the new company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more registry organizations. It’s a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to steal your domain. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this option are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Website Hosting
If you purchase a website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you would like to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Administering your domain names with us is really easy and the registrar lock feature makes no exception. If you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through our company using the very same Control Panel via which you’ll administer your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll notice a padlock icon in case the given domain name supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you’ll find out if the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to modify this status by clicking once again. The status will be updated right away and you’ll be able to start the domain name transfer without the need to wait for the update to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
