How To Protect Your Domain Names From Domain Hijack Or Domain Theft?

Establishing strong domain ownership is important to keep all your websites safe and secure as unethical hackers can attempt to transfer the ownership of your domain to someone else name and gain control over it. The act is called domain hijack or domain theft.

Domain hijacking or domain theft is the act of changing the registration of a domain name and transferring it to someone else without the permission of its original registrant. A domain owner should be aware of this act and must take preventive measure to keep all his domain names safe from such attacks. 

You can prevent domain theft by locking in your domain name because transferring any domain name to another registrar requires it to be unlocked. Hence, keeping all your domains locked will add an extra layer of protection.

How to keep your domain names locked?

To lock your domains you should contact your domain registrar or you may transfer your domain names to SANGKRIT.net.

SANGKRIT.net keeps all your domains locked by default without charging any extra fees for it. Updating any domain setting requires a domain name to be unlocked, here the automatic system unlocks and then relocked your domain only when you attempt to update your nameservers or any contact information on your domain name.

A green colour lock-unlock button is also present next to each of your domain name listing to let you manually lock or unlock your domain names.

Additionally, an instant email notification is sent to you every time your domain settings are updated.
