Domain Theft Protection  feature helps ensure that your domain name remains safe from illegal domain name transfers. Enabling Theft Protection on your domain name will result in a Transfer (Away) Request for this domain name to another Registrar to fail at the Registry itself.



  • This feature is not available for the following TLDs (domain name extensions) on account of restrictions imposed by the Registry:
    • Due to restrictions imposed by the Registry:
      • .NZ
      • .UK
    • Due to other restrictions:
  • If you wish to have your domain name transferred away from Webnoo Technologies Private Limited for some reason, you need to first disable the Theft Protection and then place a Transfer request at the Registrar of your choice.
  • Depending upon whether the Theft Protection service is available for a domain name or not, the Order Information view of the domain name will display the Theft Protection status, under the Order Information section as:
    • Enabled (Green circle): indicates that the Theft Protection service has been turned on for your domain name and any request to Transfer the domain name to another Registrar will fail.
    • Disabled (Grey circle): indicates that the Theft Protection service has been turned off for your domain name and your domain name can be transferred away to another Registrar.

To Enable/Disable Theft Protection for a domain name:

  1. Login to your Customer Control Panel, search for the domain name and proceed to the Order Information view.
  2. Click the Theft Protection link.
    • To Enable Theft Protection: select the Enable button.
    • To Disable Theft Protection: select the Disable button.
  3. Click the Update Theft Protection Status button.



You will encounter the below error message in case the domain name is Locked/Suspended at the Registry (and not under our system):

Domain Status does not allow this operation.

In this case you are requested to contact our Support Team at to know, the reason for the Lock/Suspension and how the Lock/Suspension may be removed.
