All generic domain name extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose function is to stop unauthorized transfers of existing domains. Many registry organizations that manage ccTLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for better security and for the convenience of the domain registrants. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has been given access to the account with the current registrar company can accomplish that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for regulating the transfer of existing domains between registrar companies that have been introduced over the years.
