Where can I find the authorization code for my domain?

What is an authorization code?

The EPP Auth Code or authorization code is the transfer password of a domain.

If you want to transfer a domain a valid authorization code may be required, depending on the TLD.

You can request the authorization code from your current provider of the respective domain.

After you have added the transfer request into the shopping cart you will get a notice if you need an authorization code for the transfer.

Auth Code for domain transfer

If you want to transfer a domain from dd24 to another provider/registrar (transfer out), you often need an Auth Code for the transfer.

  • If so, you can request the Auth Code for a domain registered with dd24 directly in your account.
  • If a transfer lock is set for a domain, the domain must be unlocked at first in order to transfer the domain.
  • Please note that not all domains can be unlocked.
  • Some registries - for example DENIC for .de - do not offer a transfer lock (status: ClientTransferProhibited) at all.

State locked

A transfer lock can either be set or deleted by clicking on the "lock icon".

Incoming transfer requests will be denied automatically and without further warning if the lock icon shows the state "locked".
