Getting the Authorisation Code for Your Domain with IONOS

This article will show you how to display the authorisation code for your domain in IONOS.
The authorisation code prevents unauthorised third parties from acquiring your domain. You need it to approve (authorise) the domain transfer to a new provider.

  • In the Domains section, open the Renewal & Transfer page.
  • Select your domain.
  • Click Show Authorisation Code.

Your authorisation code will be requested from the registration authority responsible for your domain. It can occasionally take several minutes for the authorisation code to be displayed.
