How To Get A Domain Epp/Authorization Code From Namecheap (Step By Step)

Are you looking to transfer your domain from Namecheap to another registrar or vice versa? One crucial step in this process is obtaining the EPP (Extensible Provisioning Protocol) or authorization code from Namecheap. This code is necessary to initiate the domain transfer process and ensure that your domain is securely transferred to the new registrar of your choice. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of obtaining a domain EPP/authorization code from Namecheap.

Step 1: Log in to Your Namecheap Account

After completing the verification process, Namecheap will generate the EPP/authorization code for your domain. The code will be displayed on the screen, and you may also receive it via email for your records.
