EPP Key and how to request ownership of a BookingSuite domain
What is an EPP code?
An EPP key, or Extensible Provisioning Protocol key, is an authorization key required by your new registrar to complete a registration transfer.
If BookingSuite registered your domain name when you signed up for WebDirect, you can keep the domain name by transferring it to a new domain provider of your choice.
You need to create an account with your preferred domain name provider. Once your account is created you can begin the process of transferring your domain name’s ownership.
You should have received an EPP code (Authorization key) via email from BookingSuite. This code is unique to your domain name and is needed in order to transfer the domain name’s ownership from BookingSuite to you.
Use the EPP code in your new domain name provider’s portal and complete the domain name ownership transfer. Make sure that your account details such as email, name, and address (created in Step 1) are reflected to show the domain name now belongs to you.
Once you have successfully claimed ownership of your domain name, to avoid any website downtime, your DNS records will have to be re-implemented. To keep your WebDirect website content visible, re-enter your domain name’s DNS settings to the following:
@A record should point to 22.214.171.124
www CNAME should point to suite-sites.booking.com
Otherwise, if you already have a new website provider by the time of the domain name transfer, you can already configure the DNS records to redirect to your new site.
Please note that a domain name transfer can take from 7-14 days to be completed.
If you need help when transferring a domain name we strongly advise you to check the Help Center of your preferred domain name provider or contact them directly for assistance.
In case you did not receive the EPP code from BookingSuite or the code is malfunctioning, please contact us to request an (new) EPP code.
