What is a domain transfer lock?
If your domain is under a domain transfer lock, you will be unable to transfer it. If your domain is transfer locked, it could be due to the following factors:
- Registrar Lock: This is an internal lock that we, your domain registrar, place on your domains in an effort to keep them from being transferred or moved to another account by anyone other than the owner.
- New Registration: Newly registered domains cannot be transferred within 60 days of registration and, thus, are considered under a transfer lock. This cannot be adjusted and is a part of ICANN policy.
- Recent Transfer: Newly transferred domains also cannot be transferred within 60 days of the original transfer, which puts them under a transfer lock. This also cannot be adjusted and is a part of ICANN policy.
Note: If you are setting any kind of transfer lock within your Dynadot account, this is referring to the first type of domain transfer lock listed above, Registrar Lock.
