Turn Domain Protect On or Off

Turn Domain Protect On or Off

To protect your domain name registration from unauthorized or fraudulent transfers, Network Solutions®® turns on Domain Protect as the default for each of your domain names.

Domain Protect blocks domain name transfers to another registrant until you or your designated contact turns off the feature. You therefore can control the transferability of your domain names and protect against domain hijackers while still performing legal name changes, account consolidation, or transfers between Network Solutions® accounts.
