Transferring an existing domain involves switching the domain name registrar that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record modifications through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most universal and country-specific domain name extensions. Some 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. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so no one can even try to take your domain. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
With a web hosting from our company, you’ll exercise complete authority over your domains through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, on the condition that the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once again will enable you to update that status. If you would like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect momentarily, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the exact same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Managing your domain names with us is extremely easy and the registrar lock option is not an exception. In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to administer the domains registered through us using the very same Control Panel via which you will manage your web hosting account. For your convenience’s sake, the domain names will be displayed in alphabetical order and on the right-hand side you will see a padlock icon in case the given domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click on the icon, you’ll see whether the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to modify this status by clicking again. The status will be changed right away and you will be able to initiate the transfer without needing to wait for the change to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
