Why are domain names locked for 60 days after registration or transfer? Print

  • 236

Domain names are locked for 60 days after registration to prevent domain name hijacking. This is done to ensure that the domain name is not transferred away from the registrant before they have a chance to use it.

The lock prevents unauthorized transfers of domain names, which can be a problem for those who register domain names but do not intend to use them immediately.

The 60 day domain lock is part of the ICANN transfer policy and we cannot override this lock. This means that if you want to transfer your domain name, you will need to wait for at least 60 days before the transfer can be completed.
