How do I remove the "clientTransferProhibited" status from my Route 53 domain?

The status of my Amazon Route 53 domain is "clientTransferProhibited". How do I remove this status?
The domain registries for all generic top-level domains (TLDs) and several geographic TLDs provide the option to lock your domain. Locking a domain prevents someone from transferring the domain to another registrar without your permission. If you enable transfer lock for a domain, then the status is updated to "clientTransferProhibited". To remove the status, disable the transfer lock.
Note: If you receive errors when running AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) commands, make sure that you’re using the most recent AWS CLI version.
- Open the Route 53 console.
- In the navigation pane, choose Registered domains.
- Select the name of the domain that you want to update.
- For Transfer Lock, choose Disable.
- Choose Save.
Or, you can run the following command in the AWS CLI:
aws route53domains disable-domain-transfer-lock \ --region us-east-1 \ --domain-name example.com
Note: Be sure to replace the Region and domain name placeholders with your corresponding values.
