How to unlock a domain

To unlock one of your domains send the following request to our API server. Locked domains may not be transferred to another registrar. If you want to transfer a locked domain to another registrar, you first have to 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.
