AuthInfo code (transfer code) is used for protecting domain names against unauthorized registrar change.

The AuthInfo code is valid within 20 calendar days.

It becomes invalid:
  • following the domain name transfer to another registrar
  • following the domain name transfer to another registrant
In the event of the current Registrar's refusal to transfer the domain name on the grounds contemplated in the .RU, . Domain Registration Policy and the Schedule "On procedure governing domain name transfer between registrars."
