VeriSign, the official registry provider for .COM and .NET, will soon be upgrading the security of their authorization code (auth code) and transfer system. This update will require all auth codes, for existing and future domains, to consist of:
- eight (8) alphanumeric characters,
- having at least one (1) numeric,
- one (1) alphabetic, and
- one (1) special character

Clients of HEXONET:
- All new registrations will automatically be assigned auth codes that comply with the new registry requirements.
- Existing domains must have their auth codes updated according to the new regulation after system upgrade.
- For API connected clients, the OT&E is already compliant with the new regulations and can be used to test immediately.
