Unlock My Domain

We keep your domains locked to keep them secure. Locked domain names cannot be transferred to another registrar or account. When you make changes to a domain's settings, such as updating nameservers or contact information, we automatically unlock and re-lock the domain name. To transfer your domain name, however, you must unlock it.

  1. Log in to your GoWebsite account.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.

How you now access the DNS manager will depend on the view of your account.
