If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is incredibly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different systems, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains 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’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
