Please follow these steps to unlock your domain at Dreamhost.

  1. Log in to your Dreamhost account.
  2. Your panel’s Registrations page, as well as the WHOIS lookup, displays the lock status. You will see the Locked? column with the “Yes” or “No” status at the Registrations page. Click the status to change it.  
  3. You can also look at the locked status of your domain by using the WHOIS lookup for domain registration. Check the Domain Status section of the WHOIS lookup for the domain. The following status will if the domain is locked:

Submit the transfer request from My Domains in HostPapa Dashboard, and we’ll take care of the rest.
