    Netsol: Where can I generate the Authorization Code/Key?

    I've been going around in circles in Netsol's domain admin trying to generate an authorization key for a domain I need to transfer from them.

    Any pointers? Their documentation instructs you to contact your registrar for this info (funny that they don't address what to do if that's them)

    TIA,

    Call them. They'll email the auth code to the domain's "main contact" email.

    Thanks Dave. I got off the phone with them right as your reply came in. It appears they don't provide the ability to generate these on your own which I find to be pretty sad. I guess you could view it as an added layer of security, though it wouldn't stop a malicious hijack if someone already had access to the account.

    Oh well, on a positive note, I didn't have to wait on the phone for more than 10 seconds so that was impressive.

    They also wouldn't generate and email the owner at my request. They said they had to talk to her which I found odd. I'm listed as a Technical admin in netsol for that domain, but they'd only give the key to the owner. Fair enough. But requiring her to call in to request it first-hand seemed odd. Oh well.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Of course, but having someone wanting to talk to someone to then send an email is pretty pointless. If they make her fax in a copy of her driver's license, passport, etc -- sure, that'd be different.

    Otherwise, if I had control enough to get into the account, I'm fairly certain I can redirect contact email and mis-represent myself as the owner.

    Just saying, I don't see that as being that much of a value-added level of security. It's more of a way to keep customers from having the ability to easily handle transfers away.

    Just my 2 cents fwiw
