If you want to transfer your domain names which you registered through domainking.ng to another domain registrar, you will be required to provide an authorization code also called epp key – which you can only obtain from domainking.ng.
Many domainking customers have not been able to get the epp codes of their domain names since NiRA shut down domainking.ng but guess what? There are tricks you can use to obtain the epp code of your domain name registered through domainking.ng. Follow me through the steps below:
Use a whois lookup tool to check where domainking registered your domain name.
If you see “public domain registry in the whois info, then send an email to email@example.com requesting for the epp code of the domain name which was registered by their reseller “domainking.ng”.
Ensure you use the email address you used when you signed up at domainking.ng. Also tell them to help you disable “whoisguard” and “domain lock” on the domain name so that the domain transfer can be successful.
Once your request is verified, they will assist you.
Login to your domainking account as explained in my previous blog post. Click here to read the tutorial.
Click on “Manage Orders” > “List/Search Orders”
Click on the domain name which you want to obtain it’s epp code
Click “Domain Secret”
A window will pop up. Proceed to copy the code.
Then, use it to initiate your domain transfer from domainking.ng to another registrar of your choice.
I hope this helps.
