How do I lock and unlock my domain?

When you register a domain with HostSect (or transfer a domain to HostSect), the domain will be locked automatically. You can unlock and relock your domain anytime; however we recommend turning locking off only in the event that you need to make changes to your domain name servers.

To unlock or relock your domain:

  1. Login to the Client Center.
  2. Select "My Domains" under the "Domains" menu item
  3. Click the "Manage Domain" button next to the domain you want to unlock
  4. Click the "Registrar Lock" tab
  5. If your domain is locked, you will see a "Disable Registrar Lock" button, click it to unlock your domain.
  6. If you domain is unlocked, you will see a "Enable Registrar Lock" button, click it to lock your domain.
