  • What do you mean by EPP key?

    Hello Everybody,

    What is meant by my EPP key? And is it required during the registration of a domain name?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Annie,

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

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

    EPP key is one of a security precautions in order to protect your domain from being transferred illegally. So, If anyone other than your registrar requests your EPP Key, you should make sure that you validate the request. it is required at the time of transfer domain to new.
