Transferring an existing domain involves switching 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 registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most universal and country-specific top-level domain name extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry organizations. It is a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will not be possible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to snatch your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domains that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

If you buy a web hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with only several clicks of the mouse. All registrations will be listed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a small padlock symbol. Clicking on it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just have to click once again and you’ll be all set. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the exact same place as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different admin panels.
