« Back to Domain Name Dictionary | Definition of EPP Code
An EPP Code (also known as an EPP key or domain authorization code) is one of the safeguards against unauthorized transfers of domain names. The EPP code is required when transferring .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info and .us domain names. It is not possible to initiate a domain name transfer from one registrar to another for a domain name without it’s associated EPP code.
You can find the EPP code in your domain name control panel at your registrar. Next to the domain you are interested in, there will be a button labeled “Manage”, or similar. Following this link will provide you with all the information about your domain name including the EPP code.
Please note that EPP codes are case sensitive.
