Transferring an active domain name involves changing the domain registrar that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS entry modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer process itself is standard with most generic and country-code domain extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a security option, which is being embraced by more and more registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to snatch your domain. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a web hosting plan from us, you’ll exercise complete control over your domains through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, as long as the particular top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to modify that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just need to complete the very same steps.
