Domain Lock

Domain Lock is a prevention tool to stop un requested attempts to transfer your domain. This feature should be enabled at all times unless you are actively transferring the domain.

If your domain is unlocked for 30 days, we’ll automatically re lock it for you and your security.

If your domain displays the following notice for the IRTP 60 Transfer Lock, you will not be able to unlock your domain during this time (date shown below is just an example - date shown to you will be different).

IRTP Transfer Lock Enabled
This domain is currently locked for transfer due to a contact change or new registration. This will expire on Tuesday, October 31st, 2023.

Domain lock can be enabled / disabled within your account area found at https://core.evolvewebhost.com

To begin, login to your Evolve Web Hosting account and navigate to Domains > My Domains or click the Domains icon from the Dashboard.

Manage 1 Domain at a Time
Click on the down arrow to the right and choose Manage Domain. Find the link toward the left of your screen that says Registrar Lock. The following screen will provide you with the option to enable this feature if it is not already. If it is already enabled, no further action is required.

By default, we automatically lock the domain for you when you Register a new Domain Name or Transfer a Domain Name to Evolve Web Hosting.
