Transferring an active domain entails switching the company that provides the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS record updates through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most universal and country-specific domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a security feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry organizations. It is a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer process, so nobody can even try to steal your domain name. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just a couple of mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed 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 sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you wish to transfer it away, you will just have to click once more and you will be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the exact same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different tools.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through us is remarkably easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You’ll see all your domains in the Domain Manager section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect instantaneously, you will be able to proceed with the domain transfer without the need to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS sites. If you change your mind and opt not to transfer the domain name away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
