What is Domain (Transfer) Secret or Authorization (Auth.) Code and how you can obtain it from your Current Registrar?


A Domain (Transfer) Secret or Authorization Code is a code assigned by the Registrar at the time the domain name was registered. This Auth Code acts like a password for a domain name. Domain (Transfer) Secret is an extra security measure, ensuring that only the owner of the domain can transfer their domain name.

To transfer any domain name of any of the following extensions, you would require to first obtain the Domain (Transfer) Secret or Auth. Code from your current Registrar:

  • .com
  • .net
  • .org
  • .info
  • .biz
  • .us
  • .in (along with any third level .in domain like .co.in)
  • .name
  • .bz
  • .mn
  • .mobi
  • .cc (not compulsory)
  • .tv (not compulsory)
  • .coop

Ideally, your domain name's Domain (Transfer) Secret or Auth. Code should be available within the Domain Name Management Interface provided by your Registrar. In the event that you are not able to locate your Domain (Transfer) Secret or Auth. Code, you need to contact the Support Team of your current Registrar, to obtain the same.
