Anyone have any trouble getting the authorization codes? The domain's previous owner is saying they don't use these for .jp domains?
When you transfer the domain to GoDaddy, be sure to choose the option under the entry box (for the domain) that reads "Transfer Multiple Domains" (even if it is only one domain). You will be sent our 2 transfer codes upon purchase to enter in order to approve the transfer in the Pending Transfer screen. If you do not have an Authorization Code, you do not need to enter it - it is optional/not required. Leave the field blank and complete approval.
