retrieve-domain-auth-code

Description

This operation returns the AuthCode for the domain. To transfer a domain to another registrar, you provide this value to the new registrar.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  retrieve-domain-auth-code
--domain-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--domain-name (string)

The name of the domain that you want to get an authorization code for.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To get the authorization code for a domain so you can transfer the domain to another registrar

The following retrieve-domain-auth-code command gets the current authorization code for the example.com domain. You give this value to another domain registrar when you want to transfer the domain to that registrar.

This command runs only in the us-east-1 Region. If your default region is set to us-east-1, you can omit the region parameter.

aws route53domains retrieve-domain-auth-code \
    --region us-east-1 \
    --domain-name example.com

Output:

{
    "AuthCode": ")o!v3dJeXampLe"
}

For more information, see Transferring a Domain from Amazon Route 53 to Another Registrar in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.
