Retrieving your domain's authorization code from Dotster¶
Retrieving your auth key or EPP code from Dotster allows you to move your domain name registration from Dotster to another domain name registrar like Fused. You might want to do that if Dotster is increasingly unresponsive, expensive, or difficult to reach in an emergency.
To start, understand that moving your domain registration should be completely seamless. There should be no impact to your hosting services regardless of what provider you're using.
