This EPP Key will then need to be sent to the new hosting company as they will need it to send the transfer request.

With most domain names there will no be cost to transfer it but you will be charged for the hosting of the domain and your website by the new company.

To keep a domain you will be charged an annual renewal fee based on the rates for the domain at that time. This will be billed every 12 months from the date of registration.
