Transferring an already registered domain name involves switching the company that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal payments or DNS record modifications through the new registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a security option, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to initiate a transfer process, so nobody can even try to snatch 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 functionality are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Shared Web Hosting
With a shared web hosting plan from our company, you’ll exercise absolute control over your domains through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, provided that the particular top-level domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you will see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once again will permit you to modify that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar company, you can start the process right away. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect instantaneously, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the exact same steps.
