How to Generate the Authorization Code to Transfer Your Domain Name?


Authorization code for a domain name refers to EPP code or Auth code, it is unique for a domain and it is provided by your registrar when it is registered.During a domain registration, Auth/EPP code provides an extra level of security.


You need the EPP code or the auth code when you are transferring the domain from one registrar to another registrar.This EPP/ Auth code which is given to the domain at the time of registering acts as a password and ensures that only owner of the domain can transfer the domain name.


Auth/EPP codes are required for .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz, .info, .me, .co, .io, .ca, .tv, .in, .mobi, .cc, .pe, .com.pe, .net.pe, .org.pe,.tech, .top, .party, .loan, .faith and other new gTLD/country code TLD domain transfers.
