How to unlock an internal domain name

Published on 31 October 2022

Domain names are locked by default to avoid any unsolicited outgoing transfer. In case you want to transfer your domain name to another registrar, you can unlock it from your Scaleway console.

Identity and Access Management (IAM):

If you have activated IAM, you may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
Requirements:
  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have a domain name registered with Scaleway Domains and DNS
