In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is amazingly easy. You will not have to switch between different admin consoles, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all active domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks from the exact same section.
