Transferring an already registered domain involves changing the registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS modifications through the new domain registrar. The transfer process is standard with most universal and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails several basic procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security option, which is being embraced by more and more domain registry operators. It is a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to initiate a transfer procedure, so nobody can even attempt to register your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domains that support this functionality are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Hosting
If you buy a Linux hosting from our company, you’ll be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a few clicks. All registrations will be listed alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and for each one of them you will notice a mini padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain is locked and you’d like to transfer it away, you’ll just have to click once more and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are administered in the very same place as the web hosting account itself, you won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces.
