How do I prevent my domain from being transferred elsewhere?

By requesting a Domain Lock, it will be impossible for third parties to transfer your domain elsewhere. This will prevent your domain from being hijacked. We would advise you to use a Domain Lock where possible.

The following domains support Domain Locking: .com .net .org .info .biz .name .be .ag .bz .cc .in .la .pl .sc .tk .tv .tw .us and .mobi.

To request a Domain Lock from your Control Panel, follow the steps below:


Step 1

Log in to your controlepaneel, navigate to the 'Domain & Hosting' tab and click your domain name on the left.


Step 2

Scroll down and click 'Enable' behind 'Transferlock'.
