The Singapore Network Information Centre (SGNIC) has introduced a “RegistryLock” feature for .SG domain names with the aim of mitigating domain name hijacking risks. For now the RegistryLock is being implemented as a six-month pilot run that started in early May, with a view to convert it into a permanent feature.
RegistryLock protects domain names from being hijacked and redirected to an attacker’s website or email system. It does this by requiring the domain name’s administrative contact to unlock the domain name before the DNS nameserver information can be changed by the registrar.
Lexsynergy offers both Registry and Registrar Lock services to ensure the protection of your business critical domains. If you are interested in implementing a security lock on one of your domains, email us at [email protected]
