Domain Transfer: Where Is My EPP Code?

October 23, 2020 in Latest News, Shinjiru Tip Sharing by Diyana Rose

When transferring your domain, you will be asked for the EPP code.

What is this code and how do you get it?
The Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP), also known as Transfer Secret or Authentication Code is similar to a password. It is one of the safeguards against unauthorised transfers of domain name registrations and it protects your rights as a domain owner.

You need to obtain the EPP code from your current (old) Domain Service Provider or Registrar when transferring your domain to a new Registrar.

How do you look for your current Registrar?
There are many third party WHOis online tools that can provide such information, such as:
The domain Registrar will be listed in the output of your search.

For example, you want to transfer your domain name to Shinjiru. Before we can proceed, you need to perform the following steps;

  • Unlock the domain name.
  • Remove Privacy Protection service for the domain name to enable our Registrar to view the domain info from WHOis.
  • Make sure that you are able to access the admin contact email. If not, you need to change the admin contact email to one that you can access. The domain transfer approval will be sent to that email and you will need to reply to activate the approval.
  • Get the EPP code for the domain name from your current Domain Service Provider or Registrar and submit it to us.

Remember, the EPP Code is used for authorising domain name transfer to another service provider. It is necessary for us to have this EPP Code before we can transfer your domain name to us.
