How do I know if my domain is locked?

To check the status of your domain lock, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  3. Find the domain name(s) from your domain list and look to the far right until you see a "Lock" icon. If you hover over the icon, it will say "Locked" or "Unlocked".

You can also see if a domain is locked by clicking on the domain from the "Manage Domains" page and scrolling down to the "Transfer Lock" section.

We recommend keeping your domains locked unless you are in the process of a transfer. This helps ensure their security. If you do leave a domain unlocked, our system will relock it after 14 days.
