Registry Lock

Registry Lock provides an extra layer of security for your domain at the Registry level. This added security eliminates a single point of failure to prevent domain hijacking, domain deletions (intentional or by accident), unwanted transfers, or any Whois modifications, including nameservers changes.

Registry Lock is ideal for established brands or corporations, high traffic websites, enterprise, and any high-value domains. On top of added security measures, our clients can employ in their member accounts (ie: ESM enhanced security mode, restricted logins, alert notifications, 2Factor Authentication), this provides further assurance for domain holders at the Registry level.

easyDNS is authorised to offer Registry Lock for .COM, .NET & .CA domains.

To arrange the locking or unlocking of your domain, the Registrant (or principal authorised contact) would need to contact easyDNS to work with us through a strict verification process. We in turn will work with the Registry to arrange the locking (or unlocking) of your domain.

Pricing is as follows:

• .COM & .NET – $300 USD per year

• .CA – $395 CAD per year

There is an initial $50 set up fee. The annual rate allows up to 5 changes per year and any additional changes will incur a $75 fee each time until the next Registry Lock/domain renewal. This will be set up as an auto-renewal along with the domain’s registration.

easyDNS must be the registrar.

easyDNS supports Registry Lock requests Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm Eastern time.

For .CA Registry Lock, since the expiry dates of the service and domain, will be the same, the service will be pro-rated. Registry Lock can only be cancelled during Auto-Renew Period to receive a refund. During any other period, there will be no refund (as the .CA does not refund Registry Lock at any other time but during Auto Renew Period).
