A domain authorization code is a unique 6 to 32 character code assigned to a domain. It is designed to prevent fraudulent or unauthorized transfers. This code is an extra safety feature, similar to a credit card verification code or PIN for your domain, that helps ensure that the customer transferring the domain is indeed the owner of that domain.
How do I find my domain's auth code?
For any domain that you registered through (mt) Media Temple, you can retrieve your auth code in your Account Center.
- Log into the Account Center.
- From the Overview page or Domains tab, select the domain you want to transfer.
- Click on the Auth Code icon under Domain Tools.
- Click the Email Auth Code button. The email will be sent to the current administrative email. If needed, you may edit the Admin Contact before continuing.
