Transferring an already registered domain name involves switching the registrar company that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS entry modifications through the new company. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a safety feature, which is being adopted by more and more registry operators. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer process, so no one can even try to take your domain. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting from our company, you will exercise absolute authority over your domain names through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the specific domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking 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 it for the second time will allow you to edit that status. In case you wish to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can initiate the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, 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.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is incredibly easy and can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server. You will find all your domains in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock feature will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect instantaneously, you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer process without the need to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS lookup websites. If you change your mind and decide not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel.
