Registrar Specific Instructions for Obtaining Transfer Authorization Code (Auth Code)

If you want to transfer your .com. .net, .biz, .us, .org or .info domain, you will need to contact your current registrar and request the domain's Authorization Code (also referred to as an auth code, Authinfo code or an EPP code). An authorization code is usually a 6- to 16-character code assigned by the registrar. Authorization codes are basically a password for the domain serving as an extra security measure. The auth codes ensure that only a domain owner can make domain name transfers. The Registry requires the Auth Code so for .BIZ, .US, .ORG, and .INFO domains you will not be able to continue a transfer until you are able to get the Authorization Code from your current registrar. We recommended obtaining your domain's Authorization Code before initiating a domain transfer request.

This article describes how to obtain a transfer Authorization Code (Auth Code) for .org, .info, .us, .biz and .name domain names from the most common registrars. Auth Codes are not required to transfer .com or .net domains. Perform a whois search on the domain name you wish to transfer. Look at the registrar field. This whois field will list your current domain name registrar. Simply follow instructions listed below for that particular registrar to obtain your domain name's authorization code.

4Domains.com | Address Creation | AIT Domains | AW Registry | BulkRegister.com | Directi™ | DirectNIC | Domain Monger | Dotster® | EnCirca | eNom, Inc. | Joker.com | Melbourne IT | Names4Ever | NamesDirect | NameScout | NameSecure | NameZero | Network Solutions® | Register.com® | RegisterFly.com | Stargate | Tucows | Verio | Yahoo! Domains

Don't see your registrar listed? Check any help or knowledge base available on your current registrar's site. If your registrar doesn't have a an article on Authorization Codes or Auth Codes, email your existing registrar's customer support from the domain's administrative contact address and request your Authorization Code or Auth Code for a particular domain name. If you are told a .ORG, .BIZ, .INFO, .US or .NAME domain name does not have an authorization code, then the registrar is mistaken. Be persistent! Registrars are contractually required to provide auth codes upon registrant request. If you still can't get any where with your current registrar please contact us. We'd be happy to help if you are transfering your domain to us.
