This article will show you how to check and activate the transfer lock for your domain in 1&1 IONOS.
For your security, domains with generic domain extensions (.com, .net, .org...) registered with 1&1 IONOS are protected by a transfer lock by default. Therefore, you usually do not have to activate the transfer lock yourself.
If you disable the domain transfer lock in order to carry out a domain transfer but then decide not to complete the transfer, you should reactivate the transfer lock for your protection:
- In the Domains section, open the Renewal & Transfer page.
- Select your domain.
- Click the Domain transfer lock option.
The domain transfer lock will be activated. This can take a few minutes.
