If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email address, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks from the same section.
