Domain Lock is a chargeable service that allows domain names in the UK namespace to be locked at the Registry level. This means that no changes can be made to the Domain Name System (DNS) configuration unless unlocking is explicitly requested by a pre-authorised representative through an additional authentication process.
This additional security layer provides peace of mind that changes cannot be made to the DNS without identity being thoroughly authenticated.
Who is Domain Lock for?
Domain lock is for anyone who is concerned about the reputational damage that could occur if their website is hijacked. This service would be most suitable for high profile brands, financial services, media companies, and high traffic websites but can be applied to any domain in the UK namespace.
How does Domain Lock work?
When Domain Lock is applied to a domain, it is locked down by Nominet. This means that no changes can be made by anyone
- Prevents nameservers from being changed
- Prevents the registrant name and/or address and contact details from being amended
- Prevents the domain from being transferred to another registrar
