Authorization code

There are special requirements regarding the format of the authorization code. Please consider the following restrictions, if you want to assign a new authorization code to a .COM domain:

  • Minimum 8 characters
  • having at least one (1) numeric,
  • one (1) alphabetic, and
  • one (1) special character

 

These syntax rules are legible as of November 14th, 2009. It is possible that updates for domains which still have an "old" AuthCode assigned, will fail with this error message: 

505 AUTH - minimum 8 characters, containing at least one numeric, one alphabetic and one special character
