EPP Codes (Transfer Authorization Codes)


#1

An EPP code (sometimes also referred to as a transfer authorization code) is the authorization code you need to begin a transfer of a domain from one registrar to another. It is provided by the domain registrar where the domain is currently registered. In order to transfer a domain registration to Reclaim Hosting a domain needs to be unlocked and the code is entered during the order process at Reclaim Hosting (for detailed guidelines on preparing a domain for transfer see Transfer Domains to Reclaim Hosting)

While every domain registrar has a different control panel and guidelines on how to get the code here are a few tutorials for some of the more popular hosts:

Godaddy
Bluehost
Namecheap
Hover
Dreamhost
Network Solutions
eNom
1&1

At Reclaim Hosting you can get your EPP code using the following steps:

  1. Login to your client area at https://portal.reclaimhosting.com
  2. Go to Domains > My Domains
  3. For the domain you wish to get the code for, click Manage Domain
  4. From this domain management interface you will find a tab called Management Tools and when clicked the dropdown will show the option to Get EPP Code
