Transferring an active domain entails changing the domain registrar that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS entry modifications through the new registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer process, so nobody can even try to take your domain. The lock can be removed 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 Hosting

If you order a Linux hosting from our company, you will be able to manage all domain names registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock sign. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Managing your domains with us is unbelievably easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to administer the domain names registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you will manage your hosting account. For your convenience, the domains will be listed in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll see a padlock icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock option. If you click the icon, you’ll see whether the given domain name is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking again. The status will change momentarily and you will be able to start the transfer process without having to wait for the update to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
