Transferring an active domain entails switching the company that handles the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS updates through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific TLD extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails several basic steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a safety feature, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer process, so no one can even try to take your domain. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domains that support this option are locked by default when they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

With a Linux cloud hosting from us, you will exercise total authority over your domain names through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through our company, provided that the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock logo that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it once again will allow you to modify that status. If you would like to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the process 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.

You can unlock any domain name by clicking on its icon and since the update will take effect immediately, you will be able to start the transfer procedure without needing to wait for the registrar lock status to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
