Transferring an existing domain entails switching the registrar company that provides the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS modifications through the new company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being embraced by more and more registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to snatch your domain name. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this functionality are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
With a shared web hosting from our company, you will exert absolute command over your domain names through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will enable you to change that status. In case you’d like to transfer a domain to another registrar company, you can start the procedure immediately. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just have to complete the exact same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domain names with our company is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you will administer your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domains will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will notice a padlock icon in case the particular domain name supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you’ll see whether the given domain is locked or not and you will be able to change this status by clicking again. The status will be updated immediately and you will be able to start the domain transfer procedure without the need to wait for the update to appear on WHOIS lookup websites or for our company to do anything on our end.
