All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to stop unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Lots of domain name registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled on purpose, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is one of the security measures for regulating the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
