All generic domain name extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose purpose is to stop unwanted transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that oversee ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domains are registered with the lock feature activated deliberately, so as to prevent any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the safety measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
