Transferring an already registered domain name involves changing the registrar company that handles the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS updates through the new domain name registrar. The transfer process is standard with most TLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The domain lock is a security feature, which is being adopted by more and more registry operators. It is a default feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer process, so no one can even attempt to snatch your domain name. The lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this functionality are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Website Hosting

If you buy a Linux website hosting package from our company, you will be able to administer all domain names registered through us via our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it, you will just have to click for the second time and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces.
