Transferring an active domain involves changing the domain registrar that handles the domain registration service, so after the transfer, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS resource record modifications through the new domain registrar. The transfer process itself is standard with most universal and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves several necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a security feature, which is being embraced by more and more registry operators. It’s a standard feature supported by all generic TLDs. If a domain 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 removed 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 Cloud Web Hosting

If you buy a cloud web hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us via our Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to unlock any of them with only a couple of clicks. All registrations will be shown alphabetically in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll notice a tiny padlock logo. Clicking on it will show you the current security lock status. If the domain is locked and you would like to transfer it away, you will just have to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the very same location as the hosting account itself, you won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools.
