Resend the Domain Transfer Request authorization email. This is the email we send to the WhoIs contact on record at the Registry, requesting their authorization to transfer the domain name into the account specified in this query string.


Use this command to resend the Domain Transfer Request email for a transfer. You would typically use this command when the owner who is losing the domain updates their email address after we have sent an initial authorization email.

This command can only be used between the time we send an initial Domain Transfer Request email, and the time we receive a response.


All resellers have access to this command.
