Default Not eligible for bootloader unlock?

I bought a boost mobile (USA) moto G yesterday. After I followed every step on moto site, it gives the error

Your device does not qualify for bootloader unlocking

What does this mean? Boostmobile device cannot be unlocked, therefore rooted?

please help!

TIA

I got same message but didn't care and pressed the button for unlock code!
My XT1033 is now unlocked and rooted.

That's right...

For now there isn't a way and there are no developers here working on it...

And there's no button on the site after the msg... Your device was probably eligible...

hey guys i just bought my indian version of moto g and yeah i too had this problem!! but i resolved it now my bootloader is unlocked. the site is a perfect working unlocker but the thing is u may have signed into motorola device id option under settings menu. go there unlink ur account and try in the site again. the signing in from device disallows this unlocking thing. but if u unlink the account i am sure u can unlock ur bootloader!!
