    A code that contains a series of numbers, Extensible Provisioning Protocol keys or EPP keys are required to enable the transfer of domain from one registrar to another. Sometimes people also call the EPP key an authorization code. Transfer Secret Key is another common name for the EPP key.

    Your current registrar will generate an EPP key, this code is checked through a global registry to make sure that it is valid. The EPP key is required by your new registrar when you try to transfer a domain to your new registrar. There is a unique EPP key for each domain, and you will never find two EPP keys that are similar. When you transfer a number of domains you will need to get a unique EPP key for each of the domains.

    EPP keys are essentially a security measure that prevents the unauthorized transfer of domain names. If you find that someone other than your registrar requests your EPP key you must make sure that the request is not for a fraudulent purpose.

    Hello Robin03,

    EPP Code Stands for Extensible Provisioning Protocol which is alpha-numeric code required to transfer a domain from one registrar to another registrar. EPP Code is also known as Authorisation Key Or Transfer Secret Key.

    Authorization (or EPP) keys/codes are generated by the current registrar and verified through the global registries for validity. Authorization (EPP) keys are a security code required by the registry for domain transfer, thus are unique to every domain name. No two EPP/authorization keys are the same, thus if you are transferring more than one EPP domain, you will need to obtain each domain’s specific code separately for security reasons.

    EPP key is one of the security precautions to protect your domain from being transferred illegally. If anyone other than your registrar requests your EPP Key, you should ensure that you validate the request.

    Regards.
