Unlocking your domain is a necessary step in getting ready to move it to a different registrar. Domains aren’t eligible for transfer to another registrar if they’re within 60 days of registration or a previous transfer, or if the domain has a 60-day transfer lock after a Change of Registrant.
- Sign in to your HostRooster Domain Portfolio. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
- Select the checkboxes next to the domains you’ll be updating. Or, select the checkbox next to Domain Name and then choose Select All.
- Select Lock from the action menu.
- Depending on your screen size, you may need to select the More menu and scroll down to see Lock.
- By selecting the option to Turn Lock Off, you can unlock your domains. To prevent unauthorized access to your domains, select the Turn Lock On option.
- After checking that the correct domains are being updated, select Continue.
- If your domain has Domain Protection, you’ll need to verify your identity. If you’ve had two-step verification (2SV) turned on for at least 24 hours, enter the code we sent via SMS, or enter the code from your authenticator app. Otherwise, enter the one-time password we sent to your registrant email address.
You will see a Success confirmation, which will let you know that the updates to your domains have been made.
- Once unlocked, your domain can be transferred to another registrar.
- Renew your domain prior to transferring.
- Transfer eligibility details can be found in ICANN’s Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy and our Domain Name Change of Registrant Agreement.
