How to lock/unlock my domain name?

The Locked status of the domain name is one of the safeguards against unauthorized domain transfers and it protects your rights as a domain owner. However, you need to change the status from Registrar-Lock to Active if you would like to initiate a domain name transfer. We strongly recommend that you keep your domain in Locked status unless you would like to transfer it to a new registrar.
If your domain is registered by SiteGround you can lock/unlock your domain name from:

Client Area > Services > Domains > Manage

If your domain is NOT registered by SiteGround you will need to contact your current registrar and request the change in your domain name status.

If you have problems locking/unlocking your domain, ask your host/registrar for assistance. SiteGround has long experience in dealing with various domain issues and our support team will be ready to assist you.
