Locking a Domain Record

by Barbara J. Feldman on March 8, 2005

Today’s tip is for anyone who owns a domain name. Because of an ICANN (Internet Corporation on Assigned Names and Numbers) policy change implemented late last year, it is possible to lose control of a domain if you fail to respond to an email transfer request. Since email has become bogged down with spam and spam filters, this puts everyone who owns a domain at risk. The solution is to lock your domain name with your domain registrar. This will prevent transfers and ownership changes, until the domain is unlocked. If you do not see a lock option in your domain management interface, ask your registrar to do it for you.
