Domain Locking

Home / Term / Domain Locking

Domain locking is a free security enhancement offered by PowerHoster to prevent unauthorized transfers of your domain to another registrar or web host by “locking” your domain.

Domain names can be locked to protect against unauthorized changes. This status may be called “Registrar lock” or “Client Transfer Prohibited” (or a similar term) depending upon the registry in which the domain name is registered.
