In this topic, we’ll be discussing how to manage your domain registration(s) registrar lock feature.

The domain registrar lock is a setting on the registry level that prevents any major changes to the domain such as domain transfers (prevents domain theft), contact information changes, etc. We default every new domain to having the registrar lock enabled for security purposes.

Please follow the below steps on enabling/disabling this registrar lock.
