Go to the registrar of the domain, there should be a checkbox like

"Registrar-Lock
Do not allow this name to be transferred to another registrar."

If this checkbox is active he is not able to transfer the domain to a new registrar. Simply deactive it.

Hello Walter,

Thank you very much for the prompt reply. I highly appreciate it.

Can you please let me know where can I find the 'registrar of the domain' section or how to navigate to it? Is it through the CPanel or something related to the Webhostmanager page itself? I am very new to all this stuff,Please help me out on this.It would be of very great help.

Thanks much in advance,

A registrar is a site like www.enom.com or www.register.com where you buy domains. Even if you buy through your webhost he will buy it through a registrar.
Go to the site of your registrar, login with your username/password (not the Cpanel one :)) and change it there.

Where have you bought the domain?
