I would like to know if any registrars offer any special security lock that a domain owner can place on his account if he will be away for a period of time without email access. If someone goes out of the country on vacation and doesn’t have email access, I would think his domain names would be at greater risk, as any change to the domain names would be undetected until his return, which could be too late to take preventative action.
I would think it would be easy for a registrar to place the entire account into a lockdown so domain names in the account couldn’t be transferred or have their DNS changed. This feature should be easily to implement by the domain owner, and it should require something more than an email upon return to re-activate the account.
With domain security a high priority these days, this feature is something that I think would be very important for every registrar to have.
