How to obtain de Transfer Key (or EPP/Auth code) for my domain

The Domain Transfer Key (also called authorization code, EPP key, or AUTH code) is needed to transfer certain types of domain names from one registrar to another. This security feature is intended to help prevent unauthorized transfers.

TRANSFER YOUR DOMAIN TO WEB HOSTING CANADA (INCOMING TRANSFER)

To obtain your domain's transfer key in order to transfer your domain to Web Hosting Canada, please contact your current domain registrar directly and ask them for this information. In many cases, they will provide you with an online interface so you may retrieve this information directly.

TRANSFER YOUR DOMAIN FROM WEB HOSTING CANADA TO ANOTHER REGISTRAR (OUTGOING TRANSFER)

If your domain name is currently registered with us and you wish to transfer it to another regisrtar, you can request your EPP key from the Client Area, under Domains > My Domains > (if multiple domains present, select the one to modify an click Manage Domain) > Request Transfer Key.

Depending on the type of domain, the transfer key will either be displayed on your screen or emailed to the Administrative Contact's email address within a few minutes of your request. This email address is listed in the Domain Contact Information section.

Please also remember to deactivate the Registrar lock on your domain before initiating a transfer.
