Introduction

If you decide to transfer your domain name to another provider, you will need a transfer code. This transfer code is also known as an EPP code and is a unique code that is required to complete the transfer of your domain name. Fortunately, in most cases you can easily request this transfer code from your current provider through your clientarea or account. If you can’t find it there, you can contact your provider and ask for the transfer code by e-mail or by telephone. At Snel.com it is even easier because you can find the transfer code directly in your clientarea. It is important to have the transfer code at hand before you start the move, so that you can go through the procedure without any problems.
