An Authorization Code (Auth code or EPP Key) is similar to a password; it helps prevent unauthorized transfers of your domain.

The easiest way to resolve the Invalid Authorization Code error is to do the following:

  1. 1. Request a new new authorization code from your current registrar.
  2. 2. Click here and log in to the Account Manager.
  3. 3. On the Transfer In page, click the + plus sign next to a domain that is in a status of Invalid Auth Code.
  4. 4. In the field, enter the new code.
  5. 5. Click the Submit button.

That’s it! We’ll restart the domain transfer for you.

Note: Authorization codes are case sensitive. Make sure to remove any spaces before or after the code if you choose to copy and paste it.
