What is SuperLock?

SuperLock is a mechanism to prevent individual users from performing destructive operations on a domain - like transferring the domain out. Without SuperLock, any user of an account effectively has admin power on any resource in the account. They could independently start a transfer out or push the domain into any other DNSimple account. That means a compromised user account can damage any resource inside the account.

With SuperLock, you can protect any domain from unintentional transfers or moves to a different account.
