Transferring an existing domain entails changing the company that provides the domain registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS resource record modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure itself is standard with most universal and country-specific TLD extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and involve different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name involves a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain. The domain lock is a safety feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It is a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so nobody can even try to snatch your domain name. The domain lock can be annulled only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this option are locked by default the moment they are registered.

Registrar Lock in Web Hosting

With a Linux web hosting from us, you’ll exert total authority over your domain names through our custom Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, as long as the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking the padlock symbol that you’ll see next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking it for the second time will permit you to edit that status. In case you would like to transfer a domain to another domain name registrar, you can start the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation time or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you will just need to go through the very same steps.
