EPP Key needed.

I have sold one of my websites and it got transferred to the new owner. Now I am talking to Hostgator as the hosting needs o change to new owner also. But they are asking me for EPP Key which I don't have or don't know where to find. Please Help



Hello @ralf999!


Thank you for posting. It's not possible to transfer hosting from one provider to another. You'd need to download your site and upload it again at the new host. The EPP key or authorization code is strictly used for the domain transfer.
