All generic Top-Level Domain extensions and several country-code ones support a security lock feature whose function is to stop unsolicited transfers of active domain names. Lots of registry organizations that supervise ccTLDs that don’t support this feature are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current domain registrar can do that. New domains are registered with the lock feature enabled intentionally, so as to hinder any unsanctioned transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between registrars that have been introduced over the years.
