Transfer Billing Contact

The Billing Contact of a .ie domain is the individual or company that handles payment of the initial registration fee and the annual renewal fees for the domain.

The IEDR invoices the Billing Contact each year for the renewal fee of your domain name. If you registered your .ie domain through one of our Accredited .ie Registrars then they are the Billing Contact for your domain.

To transfer your domain name to a new .ie accredited Registrar, you will need an authorisation code (Authcode).  The Authcode is a unique randomly generated code, assigned to your domain name, which is used to securely authorise your transfer.  Once you are in receipt of your Authcode please provide this to your new .ie Accredited Registrar who will perform the transfer on your behalf.

You can request your Authcode:

1)      From your current .ie Accredited Registrar.

2)      Directly from the designated .ie online portal ( Please note  you will require your username (Admin Contact NIC Handle, e.g. ABC123-IEDR) and the email address held on the IEDR database that is assigned to this username.  The Authcode will be directly emailed to this address only.  If you have forgotten your username and/or *email address, please in the first instance contact your current Registrar or alternatively contact IEDR’s Registration Services Team directly by telephone at +353 (1) 2365400 (Option 1) who will assist you in obtaining your code.

3)      Direct request to IEDRs Registration Services Team – the team will generate the code on your behalf.  The Authcode will be sent directly to the email address assigned to the Admin Contact on the domain name.  Please note IEDR will not give out Authcodes by telephone.

*If you require your email address to be updated the Admin Contact assigned to the domain name needs to send the IEDR a signed request by fax to +353 (1) 2300365 or alternatively you can send a scanned copy of the signed request by email to

Please Note: All transfers to another Billing Contact require a renewal payment for the domain that is to be transferred.
