If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can change it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.
