In order to obtain authorization code (EPP) code your domain, you need to go through steps given in below,

  1. Login in to your LankaHost Client Account
  2. Navigate to Domains => My Domains
  3. Select the Domain you need to obtain the authorization code 
  4. Click on Manage => Get EPP Code from the left navigation menu, 
  5. Then you will be provided the EPP code for the domain by the domain by the system 


The EPP Code is basically a password for a domain name. It is a security measure, ensuring that only the domain name owner can transfer a domain name. You will need it if you are wanting to transfer the domain to another registrar.


Note : If you need to transfer out domain from LankaHost, you need to unlock the domain as well. That can be done by click on 'Registrar Lock' link on the same menu and then disable the registar lock for the domain.


After you unlock the domain, you can place the domain transfer request from your new registar. Up-on payment completion to your new regsistra, you will get several emails asking your approval to transfer the domain to new registar. 


Once you approve all those requests, your domain will be transfer out-from LankaHost.


Please note, it will take 5 days to transfer out a domain from LankaHost to new registry after your approval.

Domain transfer request must be submit before domain expired. Once the domain is expired, it can't be transfer until it renew for next year.
