This article shows you how to view the authorization code for your domain in your IONOS account.
The authorization code prevents unauthorized third parties from acquiring your domain. You need it to approve (authorize) the domain transfer to a new provider.

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

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