Interested to learn what Registrar Lock is and how you can use it in order to avoid not authorized changes to your domain?
Transferring an active domain name entails changing the registrar company that provides the registration service, so after the transfer, you will have to manage things like renewal fees or DNS resource record modifications through the new registrar company. The transfer procedure is standard with most generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions. Some country-code extensions are more specific and entail different steps, but in the general case transferring a domain involves a few necessary procedures and one of them is unlocking the domain. The lock is a security feature, which is being adopted by more and more domain registry organizations. It’s a default feature supported by all gTLDs. If a domain name is locked, it will be impossible to start a transfer procedure, so no one can even attempt to steal your domain name. The lock can be removed only through the account where the domain is registered in the first place and all new domain names that support this feature are locked by default the moment they are registered.
Registrar Lock in Shared Website Hosting
Locking and unlocking a domain registered through our company is amazingly easy. This can be accomplished through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with our Linux shared website hosting packages, and will require literally two clicks. All your domain names will be shown in alphabetical order in the Domain Manager section of the Control Panel and next to those whose extensions support the registrar lock option, you’ll see a padlock-like icon. Click on it once and you will see the domain name’s current status. Click once again and you will change its status. The update will propagate instantly without the need for you or for us to do anything else for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, so you can go ahead with the transfer straight away.
