This article only applies to domain names registered through Winhost. If you registered your domain name through another registrar, you will have to contact that registrar and request the authorization code.

To generate the Authorization/EPP code for the domain name registered through Winhost:
  1. Log in to the Winhost Control Panel and go to the Domain List page
  2. Click Unlock. This will take you to the 'Unlock Domain' page. Click the "Unlock" button to unlock your domain and generate the Authorization/EPP code.
Note:  If you registered the domain name through us and have Whois Privacy enabled, you will need disable Whois Privacy before initiating a registrar transfer. You can disable Whois Privacy in the Domains Manager section of Control Panel. Click "View/Edit" under the Whois Record column.
