Transferring an already registered domain entails switching the domain name registrar that handles the registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS entry updates through the new domain registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most generic and country-code domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several basic procedures 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 gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to initiate a transfer procedure, so no one can even try to steal your domain name. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
With a Linux web hosting from us, you will exert absolute control over your domain names through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domain names registered here, provided that the specific top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you will see next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking on it once more will permit you to update that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure right away. Since unlocking a domain through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just have to go through the exact same steps.
