Protecting/Locking a Domain Name

Domain Theft Protection feature helps ensure that your domain name remains safe from illegal domain name transfers. Enabling Theft Protection on your domain name will result in a Transfer (Away) Request for this domain name to another Registrar to fail at the Registry itself.

How to enable theft protection

To Enable/Disable Theft Protection for a domain name:

  1. Login to your Client Area, search for the domain name and proceed to the Order Information view.
  2. Click the Registrar Lock link.
    • To Enable Theft Protection: select the Enable Registrar Lock button.
    • To Disable Theft Protection: select the Disable Registrar Lock button.
  3. Click the Save button.

It is advised that you Lock a domain name only in case of some payment-related issue with your Customer or if the domain name is for your own use. In all other cases enabling Theft Protection would suffice.
