Retrieving your domain's authorization code from JustHost

Retrieving your auth key or EPP code from JustHost allows you to move your domain name registration from Just Host to another domain name registrar. You might want to do that if JustHost is unresponsive, 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.

Some domain TLDs do not require authorization codes. These include first and foremost, .uk, .bz, .cc, .gd, .im, .tc, .tel, .tv, .vg, and .ws — you can review the epp code exemptions here if needed.

Unlock your domain

Before you can transfer a domain, you'll need to unlock it.
