What Is Domain Lock

A Domain Lock or a Registrar Lock prevents unauthorised third parties from transferring your domain to another Registrar. Crazy Domains and most Registrars provide this feature to give Domain Names extra protection.

When your domain is Unlocked, third parties may try to transfer your Domain Name or misdirect your domain’s Name Server without your permission. To prevent these unsolicited changes, make sure to keep your domain Locked.

However, if you want to transfer your Domain Name to Crazy Domains, make sure to Unlock your domain from your current Registrar and submit a Transfer Request to us by clicking here.
