In case you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is really easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email, so if the one that you specified originally is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
