How to lock a domain
To lock one of your domains send the following request to our API server. All transfer requests for locked domain names are automatically declined. If you want to transfer a locked domain to another registrar, you first have to domain:unlock the domain.
Please note that only a couple of top-level domains support domain locking. You can use to the tld:info request to get further information on a top-level domain. Parse the element tld:LockingEnabled to find out whether domains under a given top-level domain may be locked/unlocked or not.
