Transferring an active domain entails changing the domain name registrar that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS record modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code domain name extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even try to snatch 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 option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer, will grant you total control over your domains. You will find all domains registered through us neatly listed in alphabetical order in a separate Control Panel section. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a tiny padlock icon next to them. By clicking the icon, you can find out if the specific domain is locked or unlocked and you can update the current status by clicking once more – the process is as straightforward as that. You will not need to wait for the change to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect instantly, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to update the info that they show.
