Transferring an existing domain name involves changing the registrar company that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS modifications through the new company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most 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 involves a few basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a security option, which is being adopted by more and more registry operators. It’s a standard feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer process, so nobody can even try to register your domain name. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Shared Hosting
With a Linux shared package from our company, you will exert complete command over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific TLD extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock sign that you’ll see next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once again will allow you to alter that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to follow the exact same steps.
