What is an Authinfo Code?
An Authinfo code is a unique code which is used to authorize a registrar to begin proceedings to transfer a domain name.
When you unlock a domain name in preparation for transfer you must obtain this code. At Fabulous, when you remove the Registrar-Lock from a domain you have the option of using a randomly generated, unique Authinfo code, or you can enter your own.
When you initiate a transfer request, you will need to supply this Authinfo code to the gaining registrar for the domain transfer to be successful.
The Authinfo code is also commonly referred to as a transfer secret, transfer key, an authorization code, authority code or EPP code.
Authinfo codes are now required to contain:
- a number
- a symbol
- an uppercase letter
- a lowercase letter
- and must be between 8 and 16 characters long
