Transferring an active domain entails changing the company that handles the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS resource record modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer process itself is standard with most TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a security option, which is being adopted by more and more registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even attempt to steal your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domains that support this functionality are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

With a Linux cloud web hosting from us, you will exert full authority over your domain names through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, on the condition that the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock symbol that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will allow you to alter that status. If you would like to transfer a domain name to another registrar, you can start the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.
