Transferring an active domain name involves changing the domain name registrar that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record updates through the new company. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code domain name extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve 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 embraced by more and more registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even try to register your domain. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting
If you get a Linux cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a tiny padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you want to transfer it, you’ll just have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not need to sign in and out of different platforms.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain name registered through our company is amazingly 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 Domain Manager 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 change will propagate instantaneously, you will be able to proceed with the transfer without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to be changed on WHOIS sites. If you reconsider your decision and opt not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it once again will be just as simple and will not require more than a couple of mouse clicks in your Control Panel.
