Auth Code Invalid (IO Domain)


I am trying to move my .io domain to Cloudflare. I got my Auth Code from my current registrar but when trying to start the transfer I always get “Invalid Auth Code” (red cross).

I also transferred an .org domain to Cloudflare from the same old registrar, that worked… at least that domain is in “Approve transfer at Unknown” status.

Anything more I can try?

The domains status is “OK”

Edited to add: There are obviously no spaces in front or following the auth code :slight_smile:


Thanks for your answer. I saw that topic also, but that did unfortunately not help. I checked for trailing spaces…

Are you trying to transfer from Namecheap ?

Nope, the domain is currently at “”, a german provider. Although it seems like they use:
