If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of digits 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 company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different tools, since you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
