Domain is locked at current registrar, or is not yet 60 days old

Domains have a feature called “Registrar Lock” which prevents a domain from being transferred to another provider. In order to successfully transfer your domain, you must ensure that the domain is currently unlocked.

The domain must also be at least 60 days old in order to transfer a domain away from a registrar. If the domain was recently transferred to another provider and you’re attempting to transfer it again, the same 60 day policy applies.

If either of the above two points are not met, the domain transfer will fail with the error code of “domain is locked at current registrar, or is not yet 60 days old”. In this case, the above two points will need to be verified and the transfer can be initiated once both requirements are met.
