Retrieving your domain's authorization code from site5¶
Retrieving your auth key or EPP code from namecheap allows you to move your domain name registration. You might want to do that if site5 is unresponsive, or difficult to reach in an emergency.
To start, understand that moving your domain registration should be seamless. There should be no impact to your hosting services. This process should be relatively trouble free.
