- Can I change my data after the activation of .pl Registry Lock?
No. Changes of data require deactivation of .pl Registry Lock, regardless of the fact whether the change is obligatory (e.g. change of address, residence, the last name or a company) or results solely from your own need (e.g. change of the delegation of your domain name).
- When do I need to order deactivation of .pl Registry Lock?
If a change of the subscriber’s data locked by .pl Registry Lock is necessary, it will have to be deactivated. It is your responsibility as a subscriber of the .pl domain name and such need should be reported to your registrar. It concerns all scenarios related to modification of data, regardless of the fact whether it is obligatory (e.g. change of your address or other contact data, change of the last name or a company) or results solely from your own will (e.g. you want to change the delegation of your domain name). Deactivation shall also be necessary when there is a need for a transfer of service of your domain name to another registrar.
Remember that taking care of the correctness and up-to-date status of your data, stored in the .pl domain Registry, is your obligation.
- Can .pl Registry Lock be deactivated without my consent?
Yes, but only in exceptional circumstances, e.g. legally-binding decision of a court, failure to fulfil the obligation to update data. As a principle, your registrar does not operate without your initiative when establishing or removing .pl Registry Lock.
Each registrar applies its own verification procedures. Contact it in order to clarify the current phase of your order.

In such case you should immediately contact your registrar.

- Can my domain name be deleted after it has been secured with .pl Registry Lock?
The lock significantly restricts the risk of deletion of the domain name, but it does not concern actions such as termination of the agreement as a result of failure to pay the fees associated with the domain name for a subsequent settlement period, legally binding decisions of a court or breaching the provisions of the .pl Domain Name Regulations. In such cases the domain name can be deleted.
- What will happen to a domain name secured with .pl Registry Lock when my registrar terminates its cooperation with NASK?
In such case .pl Registry Lock for your domain name shall be automatically deactivated.

If you select a new registrar that services .pl Registry Lock you will be able to once again secure your domain name in that manner.

Determining name servers, e.g. “ns1.registry-lock.pl” and “ns2.registry-lock.pl” you will not accomplish that result.

Activation and deactivation of .pl Registry Lock do not affect the ability to file disputes on domain names.
