Registrar Specific Instructions for Obtaining Transfer Authorization Code (Auth Code)
If you want to transfer your domain name to use BuffaloWeb Services as your registrar, you will need to contact your current registrar and request the domain's Authorization Code (also referred to as an auth code, Authinfo code or an EPP code). An authorization code is usually a 6- to 16-character code assigned by the registrar. Authorization codes are basically a password for the domain serving as an extra security measure. The auth codes ensure that only a domain owner can make domain name transfers. The registry requires an Auth Code so you will not be able to initiate a transfer until you are able to get your Authorization Code from your current registrar.
This article describes how to obtain a domain name's transfer Authorization Code (Auth Code) from the most common registrars. If you are not sure who your current registrar is, perform a whois search on the domain name you wish to transfer. Look at the registrar field. This whois field will list your current domain name registrar. Simply follow instructions listed below for that particular registrar to obtain your domain name's authorization code.

If your registrar doesn't have a an article on Authorization Codes or Auth Codes, email your existing registrar's customer support from the domain's administrative contact address and request your Authorization Code or Auth Code for a particular domain name. If you are told your domain name does not have an authorization code, then the registrar is mistaken. Be persistent!
