The Registry Lock service will protect you from unauthorised changes to critical domain data without impacting your day-to-day DNS management by:
- preventing changes being made to your domain's name server records and contact details in the .gov.uk registry, until they are verified by your organisation
- notifying other nominated roles in your organisation when changes to these records have been made
Your IT provider cannot sign up to CDDO Registry Lock on your behalf. The Domain Name Administrator must sign up to the service.
