Transferring an already registered domain involves switching the domain registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS modifications through the new domain registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most gTLD and ccTLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even attempt to register your domain name. 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 option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Website Hosting

With a Linux cloud website hosting from our company, you’ll exert total control over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific TLD extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock logo that you will see next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to alter that status. If you wish to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the process momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you will just have to go through the exact same steps.
