Transferring an existing domain name entails changing the company that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS resource record updates through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most TLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few basic steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry operators. It is a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to take your domain name. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is really easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared website hosting, and will take literally two clicks of the mouse. All your domains will be displayed alphabetically in the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the domain lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like logo. Click on it once and you’ll notice the domain’s present status. Click for the second time and you will alter its status. The change will take effect instantly without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites, so you can go ahead with the transfer procedure right away.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
Administering your domain names with our company is exceptionally easy and the registrar lock feature is not an exception. In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to manage the domains registered through us using the exact same Control Panel via which you’ll manage your web hosting account. For your convenience, the domain names will be shown in alphabetical order and on the right you’ll notice a padlock icon if the particular domain supports the registrar lock feature. If you click the icon, you will find out if the specific domain is locked or not and you will be able to update this status by clicking once more. The status will be updated instantly and you will be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure without having to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites or for us to do anything on our end.
