Password requirements

EPP password

The EPP password can be changed via the EPP channel or via the registrar web.

The password protects the registrar’s EPP account and must be used to access the EPP channel. The password may only be changed by the registrar owning the account.

The password must have no less than 8 and no more than 16 characters.

Accepted characters are listed above. In addition, passwords cannot be too simple; they must meet certain criteria for password strength. Shorter passwords must be more complicated than longer passwords to be considered to have the same strength. If the attempt to change the password is rejected, the solution may be to try a longer or more complicated password.

Tip: It is recommended to use at least 12 characters in practice. This increases the likelihood that the password will meet all the requirements.

Example: my$eCret-8fs contains 12 characters and satisfies the requirements.

User password on the registrar web

User passwords are set via the registrar web.

The password protects users, who can log on to the registrar’s account on the registrar web. The password can only be changed by the user themselves or by one of the registrar’s admin users.

The password must have no less than 8 and no more than 64 characters. 

Otherwise, the requirements are the same as those for EPP passwords.

Tip: It is recommended to use at least 20 characters in practice. This increases the likelihood that the password will meet all the requirements.

Example: myUser$ecret8fs123() contains 20 characters and satisfies the requirements.

Transfer code (AuthInfo)

The code must have no less than 8 and no more than 64 characters. Accepted characters are listed above. The characters must be chosen from at least two of the four groups.

Example: my$ecret8fs123
