Registrar Lock in Hosting
With a hosting plan from us, you’ll exercise complete authority over your domain names through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to do anything you’d like, including locking/unlocking any of the domain names registered through us, provided that the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports this feature. Clicking on the padlock icon that you will notice next to any domain registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it for the second time will allow you to change that status. If you want to transfer a domain name to another domain name registrar, you can start the procedure instantly. Since unlocking a domain name through your Control Panel will take effect immediately, no propagation period or any action on our end will be needed. Locking a domain name is just as easy – you’ll just need to follow the very same steps.
Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can easily unlock it via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which you use to administer your semi-dedicated server account. All domain registrations will be displayed in alphabetical order in your account and you’ll see a tiny padlock icon next to each domain name there, on the condition that its extension supports the registrar lock feature. You can see whether the domain name is locked or not by clicking on this icon and modify the current status by clicking on it again. You can then go ahead and initiate the transfer procedure right away without having to wait for the status to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites, as the update will take effect momentarily without you or us having to do anything else.
