This is typically the name and email of the person who registered the domain name.

Step 3 - Priority Token Details

The domain name registered email address will receive an email with a link to retrieve your Priority token ID. The email states you have 48 hours to collect the ID otherwise you will have to repeat the process. My research shows you have about 12 hours to retrieve the priority token.

Click on the link in the email and you will be directed to a page that instructs you to click on on the Display Details button to get your Contact ID and Priority Authinfo for the .au domain.
