Domain locking to prevent unauthorized transfers

Not supported. We recommend that you prevent unauthorized transfers by restricting access to the RetrieveDomainAuthCode API action. (When you restrict access to this Route 53 API, you also restrict who can generate an authorization code using the Route 53 console, AWS SDKs, and other programmatic methods.) For more information, see Identity and access management in Amazon Route 53.

Authorization code required for transfer to Route 53

If you're transferring a .jp domain to Route 53, you don't need to get an authorization code. Instead, use the method provided by your current domain registrar to update the value of the AGNT code to AGNT-1744, all uppercase.
