Transferring an existing domain involves switching the registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to register your domain name. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domains that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting from our company, you’ll have absolute control over your domains through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the particular domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once again will permit you to modify that status. If you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can start the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.
