Invalid Auth/EPP code – Please contact current registrar to obtain correct key


The error code of “Invalid Auth/EPP code – Please contact current registrar to obtain correct key” is a fairly simple status. This means that the EPP code provided is not correct. We recommend that you verify the proper EPP code was provided in order to ensure the transfer is successful.

To obtain the EPP code, you would need to reach out to your current registrar to get your EPP code for the domain in question. If a transfer fails with this error, you can simply provide us with a new and/or correct EPP code to initiate the transfer again.

Depending on the domain extension, not all domains require an EPP code. Generally with a .UK domain extension, the IPS Tag should be updated on the domain before the transfer can proceed. In this case, the IPS tag would need to be updated to ENOM.
