Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from deciphering it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even better safety.

Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously.

All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
