Yes. You can unlock an expired domain name during the renewal grace period. Once the status indicates the domain name is in registry redemption, you cannot unlock it. See Unlock expired domains for more information.

We keep your domain name locked to prevent an unauthorized transfer. To complete a domain name transfer to a different registrar, you must unlock the domain name.
