What is a UDAI and how do I request one?
The UDAI (Unique Domain Authentication Identifier) is a randomly generated 8 character string that is unique to each NZ domain. The main purpose of a UDAI is to authorise the transfer of a domain from one registrar to another.
A UDAI is initially generated when a domain is registered, although a new UDAI can be requested at any time.
Having a valid UDAI gives a person virtually complete control over the domain name. Keep this in mind before passing the UDAI onto anyone else as they can potentially take over complete ownership of your domain.
Auth codes (sometimes called EPP codes) are similar to UDAI codes but are used for transferring international domains.
Requesting a UDAI or Auth code
Registrars are required to provide your UDAI upon request. SiteHost does not store the UDAI for your domain, but provides a method for you to request a new UDAI which will be generated and sent to the registrant via email. You may request a new UDAI (or Auth code) via the Domains module in the SiteHost Control Panel.
