Retrieving your domain's authorization code from MediaTemple¶
Retrieving your auth key or EPP code from MediaTemple allows you to move your domain name registration from MediaTemple to another domain name registrar. There's a number of reasons to consider moving your domain name from one registrar to another, such as pricing, non-responsive hosting providers & registration providers, etc.
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.
