All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to prevent unsolicited transfers of existing domain names. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise country-code top-level domain names that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated intentionally, so as to prevent any unapproved transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
