Transferring an active domain entails changing the domain registrar that provides the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS resource record updates through the new registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being embraced by more and more registry organizations. It is a default feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to take your domain name. The lock can be removed 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 Web Hosting
With a web hosting from us, you will exert absolute control over your domains through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domains registered through us, as long as the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you will find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will permit you to change that status. If you want to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure momentarily. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to complete the very same steps.
