Transferring an already registered domain involves changing the registrar company that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS record modifications through the new company. The transfer process is standard with most generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more registry organizations. It is a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even try to steal your domain name. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domain names that support this option are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a few mouse clicks. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a tiny padlock logo. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it away, you will just need to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are administered in the exact same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t have to log in and out of different systems.

You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate straight away, you will be able to go ahead with the transfer process without the need to wait for the lock status to be changed on WHOIS lookup sites. If you change your mind and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not take more than a few clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
