What is EPP Code and where can I find it?

December 16, 2015     0 comments

The EPP key/Secret (Authorization code) is one of the safeguards against unauthorised transfers of domain name registrations and it protects your rights as a domain owner. The EPP key is required when transferring .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info and .us domain names. It is not possible to initiate a domain name transfer for these domains without an EPP/Secret code.

If your domain is registered by Laws Hosting you can find the EPP key/Secret in our new Domain Portal under Domain Details.

If your domain is NOT registered by Laws Hosting you will need to contact your current registrar to obtain the EPP key/Secret before being able to initiate a domain transfer.

Please note that EPP/Secret codes are case sensitive.

If you are having issues with your host/registrar and you cannot obtain your EPP key, you may not be able to manage your domain and transfer it elsewhere. In such cases it may be best to use a new domain name for your website.

Last but not least, with each new hosting account at Laws Hosting you can have the website from your other host transferred to us for free, but the domain will carry a transfer fee.
