The registrar will need to lock the domain name within 24 hours of receiving notice that an auDRP proceeding has commenced.
The lock is in place to prevent incidents of “cyber-flight” (an attempt to avoid or delay judicial or auDRP proceedings by changing domain registration details or registrars after learning of a complaint).
To lock the domain name, please contact registry support.
Once locked the WHOIS output should contain the following EPP statuses:
- serverUpdateProhibited (auDRP)
- serverTransferProhibited (auDRP)
- serverDeleteProhibited (auDRP)
- serverRenewProhibited (auDRP)
