Disabling the Domain Transfer Lock with 1&1 IONOS

This article will show you how to check and disable 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.

Before you start the domain transfer, you must disable this domain transfer lock:

  • In the Domains section, open the Renewal & Transfer page.
  • Select your domain.
  • Disable the Domain transfer lock option.

The domain transfer lock will be disabled. This can take a few minutes.
