If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new registrar with the right 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 authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
