In case you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
