Transferring an existing domain name involves switching the domain name registrar that provides the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS entry modifications through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain entails several basic steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a safety feature, which is being adopted by more and more registry organizations. It’s a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer process, so nobody can even attempt to take your domain. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Hosting

With a hosting plan from us, you’ll exert complete authority over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered through us, as long as the particular top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock sign that you’ll notice next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once more will permit you to alter that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can initiate the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your 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 will just need to follow the very same steps.

Administering your domain names with our company is truly easy and the registrar lock option makes no exception.

If you click on the icon, you will find out whether the particular domain name is locked or not and you’ll be able to alter this status by clicking once more. The status will be changed instantaneously and you will be able to initiate the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the change to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites or for us to do anything on our end.
