« Back to Domain Name Dictionary | Definition of Registrar-Lock

REGISTRAR-LOCK is a registrar status code that can be set on an Internet domain name. This is done in order to prevent unauthorized, unwanted or accidental changes to the domain name. However, because anyone with access to the a registrar user account can modify this setting, it is sometimes defeated.

When set, the following actions are prohibited by the domain name registry:

  • Transferring of the domain name to another registrar

  • Deletion of the domain name

Some registrars provide an Executive Lock which provides additional protection.
