What Is Domain Locking?

Domain Locking is a feature of Top Level Domains (TLD) like .com, .net, .org, .biz, etc..

It prevents changes being made to a domain name such as changes to ownership contact details, changes to a domain’s Nameservers (DNS), the ability to transfer a domain between registrars or to change ownership of the domain name.

You can check the status of your domain name by doing a Whois search.
