Yahoo! Domains to Maine Hosting Solutions
If you want to transfer your .com. .net, .biz, .us, .org or .info domain, 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 the Auth Code so for .BIZ, .US, .ORG, and .INFO domains you will not be able to continue a transfer until you are able to get the Authorization Code from your current registrar. We recommended obtaining your domain¬?s Authorization Code before initiating a domain transfer request.
This article describes how to obtain a transfer Authorization Code (Auth Code) for .org, .info, .us, .biz and .name domain names from the most common registrars. 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.
- Sign in to your Yahoo! Business Control Panel (you¬?ll be prompted to enter your Yahoo! ID and password if you haven¬?t already done so).
- Click the ¬?Domain Control Panel¬? link under your domain name.
- On your Domain Control Panel, click ¬?View Your Authorization Code.¬?Note: If you¬?re a Yahoo! Website Services customer, you won¬?t see this task. To retrieve your authorization code, you must contact Yahoo.
- On the following page, you¬?ll see your domain¬?s unique authorization code. We recommend printing this code for your records, as you¬?ll need to provide it to your new registration upon transfer.
Transfer the domain name to Maine Hosting Solutions by emailing the Auth Code to email@example.com.¬† Once the transfer has been initiated you will receive an email authorizing the transfer, which you must accept in order for the transfer to proceed.¬† You will need to click on the link 2/3 down the email to accept the transfer.¬†¬† It usually takes 5 - 7 business days to complete.
