Transferring an already registered domain name entails changing the registrar that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record updates through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure is standard with most domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a safety option, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer process, so nobody can even attempt to snatch your domain. The domain lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting
If you purchase a Linux cloud website hosting
from our company, you will be able to manage all domains registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just several clicks. All registrations will be displayed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it, you’ll just have to click for the second time and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the same location as the hosting account itself, you will not need to log in and out of different user interfaces.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Locking or unlocking any domain registered through us is exceptionally easy and can be done through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you administer your semi-dedicated server
. You will find all your domain names in the Registered Domains section and the ones whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon on their right. You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the change will take effect momentarily, you’ll be able to go ahead with the domain transfer process without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to change on WHOIS lookup sites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain away from us, locking it again will be just as simple and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
