What is a Domain AUTH - EPP or Transfer Code

The transfer code is needed for a domain transfer. To get it straight from the start: An AUTH code, an EPP code or a transfer code are the same.

The Transfer code is an alphanumeric security code that exists for most top-level domains. The transfer code is known only to the domain owner or his administrative contact and must be specified when changing providers. This ensures that a provider change can only be carried out by authorized persons.
Without this transfer code no provider change can be performed!

How do I get the transfer code for a provider change to ORC Webhosting?

You can obtain the domain transfer code upon request from your current Domain Registrar or provider. The exact procedure depends on the respective registrar or provider. It is often possible to view the Auth Code in the customer area. Usually, however, you have to request the Auth Code and will receive it automatically by e-mail after you have cancelled your domain with your registrar or provider or announced a provider change.

Please contact your current registrar or provider to find out how to obtain the transfer code.
If you are using a domain switch to ORC Webhosting you need to enter the Auth code. You can enter the Auth code for the provider change directly in the order process.

Alternatively, you can provide us with the transfer code after you place your order via our support ticket system.
