How do I obtain the authorisation/EPP code for my domain name?

Your authorisation/EPP code is required when transferring certain domain names.

To request your authorisation/EPP code, please follow the instructions outlined below:

Please note: before proceeding, you’ll need to make sure that your domain isn’t locked. For details on how to do this, please read our Support article: How do I lock/unlock my domain name?

This process does not apply to Top-Level Domains that are newer than 60 days or are within 7 days of expiring.

Step 1 of 6

Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.

Step 2 of 6

Next, select Manage All opposite Domains within the ‘All Products and Services’ section.

Step 3 of 6

You will now see a complete list of your purchased domain names. Select the domain you want to update from the provided list.

If you can’t find your domain in this list, you may be able to find it on the Domain Name Overview page within our legacy Control Panel. For more details on this, please read the following article: How do I access and manage my products?

Step 4 of 6

This will take you to the overview page for your chosen domain.

From here, you’ll need to select Transfer to Another Registrar (if you’re using our current Control Panel) or Request Authorisation Code (if you’re using our legacy Control Panel).

Step 5 of 6

If you’re using our current Control Panel, a pop-up window will now appear that will show you the basic steps. Click Continue with transfer.

If you’re using our legacy Control Panel, the Authorisation/EPP code for your domain will be shown on your screen.
