Transferring an already registered domain name entails changing the domain name registrar that provides the domain name registration service, so after the transfer itself, you’ll have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS resource record updates through the new domain name registrar. The transfer procedure is standard with most Top-Level Domain extensions. Certain country-code extensions are more specific and entail different procedures, but in the general case transferring a domain name entails a few necessary steps and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain name registry operators. It’s a default feature supported by all generic top-level domain names. If a domain name is locked, it won’t be possible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even try to steal 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 domains that support this feature are locked by default when they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting from our company, you will be able to administer all domains registered through us using our Hepsia Control Panel and you will be able to unlock any of them with just several clicks. All registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and for each one of them you’ll see a mini padlock sign. Clicking it will show you the present security lock status. If the domain name is locked and you want to transfer it, you will just need to click once again and that’s it. Locking a domain name is just as easy and since the domains are managed in the exact same location as the web hosting account itself, you will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces.
