This article will show you how to check and disable the transfer lock for your domain in IONOS.

For your security, domains with generic domain extensions (.com, .net, .org...) registered with 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.
