Transferring an active domain name involves switching the domain registrar that provides the registration service, so after the transfer itself, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS resource record updates through the new domain name registrar. The transfer process is standard with most generic and country-code 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 name. The domain lock is a safety option, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry organizations. It is a standard feature supported by all generic Top-Level Domains. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to snatch your domain. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered and all new domains that support this option are locked by default the moment they are registered.

With a Linux shared hosting from our company, you will exercise complete command over your domain names through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you’d like, including locking & unlocking any of the domains registered through us, on the condition that the specific domain name extension supports this option. Clicking on the padlock icon that you’ll find next to any domain registered in your Hepsia Control Panel will show you its current status and clicking on it once more will enable you to change that status. If you wish to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can initiate the process without any delays. Since unlocking a domain name through your Hepsia Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just have to complete the very same steps.
