Transferring an active domain entails changing the company that provides the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS record updates through the new registrar company. The transfer process is standard with most universal and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain entails a few basic steps and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry organizations. It is a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to steal your domain. The 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 functionality are locked by default when they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
With a web hosting from our company, you will have full command over your domains through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will permit you to change that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the process instantaneously. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation period or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to complete the exact same steps.
