Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even better security.

On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. In case the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section.
