Transferring an already registered domain name entails changing the company that provides 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 company. The transfer process itself is standard with most TLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain name. The lock is a safety option, which is being embraced by more and more domain name registry organizations. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer process, so no one can even attempt to register your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain name is registered and all new domains that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud plan from our company, you’ll be able to manage all domains registered through us using our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with just a few clicks. All registrations will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you will see a mini padlock symbol. Clicking it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you wish to transfer it, you’ll just need to click once again and you will be all set. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domain names are managed in the very same place as the hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces.
