What is an EPP Code

An EPP code is a transfer secret or also known as authorization code. This code is a generated by your domain registrar and is tied directly to your domain name as an extra layer of protection. This provides an additional layer of security to prevent unauthorized transferring of your domain name to another registrar without your approval.


How Do I Get My Domain’s EPP Code From My Registrar

In order to transfer a domain name to a new registrar you’ll often need an EPP code (authorization code) from your domain registrar prior to beginning a domain name transfer in most cases. To acquire the EPP code from your domain registrar you would have to log in to the domain registrar’s domain control panel. In the chance that your current registrar does not have a control panel then you may have to consult their documentation or contact their support staff.
