What is an EPP Code and how do I retrieve it?

The EPP key (Authorization code) is a safeguard against unauthorized transfers of a domain name. It protects the rights of the domain owner. The EPP key is required when transferring .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info and .us domain names. It is not possible to initiate a domain name transfer for these domains without an EPP code.

If you have used Hyve to register your domain name, you can request the EPP code by creating a ticket with our support team (stating the domain name you wish to transfer). We will set the domain to be transferred to another provider. Once you have added the domain to your new registrar, it will be cancelled from our system.

If your domain is NOT registered with Hyve you will need to contact your current registrar to obtain the EPP key before being able to initiate a domain transfer.
