If you own a domain name for your business or personal use, run, don't walk, to phone, call company you registered name with, and make sure that name is "locked down." If you don't, you could easily lose your rights to that domain. And whether your Web site is an integral part of your business, or just keyed to your family's activities, waking up one morning without it could range from inconvenient to disastrous.
Just check WHOIS of domain. Every domain name will have a column STATUS in whois.
Make sure it shows as below : Domain Status : LOCKED
Note:This Domain Name is currently Locked. In this status domain name cannot be transferred, hijacked, or modified. The Owner of this domain name can easily change this status from their control panel. This feature is provided as a security measure against fraudulent domain name hijacking.
