GoDaddy Registry’s Domain Name Locking Service

GoDaddy’s Registry Lock prevents changes to delegations at the registry level. Registry Lock may not be modified or removed from a Locked Domain Name absent the express written instruction from the relevant Registrar through processes set by Registry Services, LLC (RS LLC).

RS LLC’s terms and conditions require that Com Laude receive your consent in order to place locks on a domain name, or to modify or remove locks on locked domain names. RS LLC disclaims liability for the addition, modification or removal of any locked domain names absent specific instructions from the Registrar.

Under RS LLC’s terms and conditions, RS LLC must use commercially reasonable efforts to place Registry Lock on all proposed Domains submitted by Registrar no later than: (i) two (2) business days after RS LLC’s receipt of Registrar’s initial batch of proposed Locked Domain Names, and (ii) one business day after RS LLC’s receipt of proposed locked Domain Names from Registrar after the initial batch. In addition, RS LLC must use commercially reasonable efforts to modify or remove the lock from each Locked Domain Name by no later than one (1) business day following receipt of written instructions from the Registrar.

In addition to the reservation of rights set forth in the Registry-Registrar Agreement between Nom-IQ Limited trading as Com Laude, an ICANN-accredited registrar, and the registry operator of the .BIZ TLD, RS LLC reserves the right to add, deny, cancel or modify any lock that it deems necessary, in its discretion; (1) to protect the integrity and stability of the registry; (2) to prevent or mitigate phishing, pharming, malware, or other fraudulent, illegal or otherwise abusive purpose, in RS LLC’s sole discretion, (3) to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement, in compliance with any dispute resolution process; (4) to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of RS LLC, as well as its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, representatives, employees, and stockholders; (4) for violations of the Registry-Registrar Agreement or the Registry Lock™ Protocol; or (5) to correct mistakes made by Registry or Registrar.

RS LLC reserves the right to modify materially or discontinue the Registry Lock service upon sixty (60) days prior written notice to Registrars. Upgrades and enhancements to the Registry Lock service may be performed without notice to a Registrar. RS LLC has sole discretion to determine whether any change to the Registry Lock service is a material change which requires notice.
