Domain Transfer Locking is a procedure that requires authorization to set up and then alter in the future (for transfers, updates and various other changes). Usually, registries that offer free domain locking have a self-service method that is inherently insecure – anyone who gets access to your account can turn the locking off. With Domain Transfer Lock, this cannot happen.

Once the process is initiated and all the procedures are followed, we can have your domain transfer locked within a few hours (some domains might require a couple of days to work with the registrar lock).

Domain Transfer Lock prevents DNS hijacking, unauthorised transfers, deletions, contact info changes, or any major change to the registration of an internet top-level domain.
