What are Domain Authorisation Codes?

Domain Authorisation Code is an alpha-numeric code required to transfer domain from one registrar to another registrar. 

Domain Authorisation Codes are generated by the current registrar and verified through the global registries for validity. Authorisation keys are a security code required by the registry for domain transfer, thus are unique to every domain name. No two authorisation codes are the same, thus if you are transferring more than one domain, you will need to obtain each domain's specific code separately for the security reasons.

Domain Authorisation Code is one of the security precautions to protect your domain being transferred illegally. If anyone other than your registrar requests your Domain Authorisation Code, you should ensure that you validate the request.

Domain Authorisation Code domains: (.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .us, .cn, .com.cn, .net.cn, .org.cn, .cn, .tw, and .in)

  • Above mentioned domain TLDs require an authorisation key for transfer.
  • Only Current registrar can generate EPP Code which is automatically sent to Registrant email address of a domain.
  • Gaining Registrar initiates transfer request for the domain with the authorisation key provided by the customer. This request automatically goes to Registrant and Administrative contact email address. Once domain transfer request is accepted, domain is transferred successfully within 5-7 days under new registrar account.

If you are having difficulties gaining the Domain Authorisation Code for your domain from your current registrar in regards to transferring the domain, you can contact Support to help you transfer the domain name.
