If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
