Get an authentication code (UDAI)
A UDAI is the key to your domain name. You need to protect your UDAI, and make sure that your provider does not share your UDAI with anyone else. Learn how to generate or request a UDAI for your domain name.
Step 1: Check to see if you can generate a UDAI directly
Check your registrar to see if you can generate a UDAI for your domain name directly.
Some registrars or domain name providers offer automated UDAI generation. This function is usually accessed by logging into your registrar account and going to your dashboard.
Step 2: Check your WHOIS registration details
Check your WHOIS registration details using our WHOIS Lookup. Enter the domain name and click Lookup to see your domain name details. Make sure they are up to date.
Step 3: Request a UDAI from your Registrar
To get a UDAI, you may need to email or call your registrar or domain name provider. They may also ask for evidence to prove that you are the domain name holder.
Registrars will only send a UDAI to the email address on the registration record. If you have problems with requesting a UDAI, please contact us and attach any previous correspondence.
