What does “CLIENT UPDATE PROHIBITED/TRANSFER”, REGISTRAR-LOCK, and REGISTRAR-HOLD mean?

If you have chosen to lock your domain name to prevent unwanted transfers and name server changes, the domain status will show as REGISTRAR-LOCK or “CLIENT UPDATE/TRANSFER PROHIBITED”.

A REGISTRAR-HOLD or “CLIENT HOLD” is normally applied to your domain name when it expires.

The main difference between the two is that REGISTRAR-HOLD or “CLIENT HOLD” will prevent the domain name from working.

To enable or disable locking please contact your Domain Provider directly.
