If you want to transfer your domain to another company, the other company may ask for an authorization code (also known as EPP codes or transfer keys) to verify that you own the domain name.
Note: If you need an authorization code to transfer a domain to US Domain Center instead, see Get an authorization code to transfer my domain to US Domain Center.
Many country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs) don’t require an authorization code. However, there are a few exceptions where you’ll need to call US Domain Center support to get an authorization code. For more information, see Authorization codes to transfer ccTLDs.
