Unlock or lock my domain

Unlock your domain to prepare for a transfer to a new registrar. Domains aren't eligible for transfer to another registrar if they're within 60 days of registration or a previous transfer, or if the domain has a 60-day transfer lock after a Change of Registrant.

  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Portfolio. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select the checkboxes next to the domains you'll be updating. Or, select the checkbox next to Domain Name and then choose Select All.

  3. Select Lock from the action menu.
    • Depending on your screen size, you may need to select the More menu and scroll down to see Lock.
  4. Unlock your domains by selecting Turn Lock Off. Lock your domains by selecting Turn Lock On.
  5. Verify the domains being updated and select Continue.
    • If your domain has Domain Protection, you'll need to verify your identity. If you've had two-step verification (2SV) turned on for at least 24 hours, enter the code we sent via SMS, or enter the code from your authenticator app. Otherwise, enter the one-time password we sent to your registrant email address.

You'll see a Success confirmation letting you know your domains have been updated.
