All generic domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to stop unsolicited transfers of existing domains. Lots of registry organizations that supervise country-code TLDs that don’t support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain name can be transferred only if it is unlocked and only a registrant who has been granted access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock option enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock option is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domain names between domain registrars that have been adopted over the years.
