In case you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting plans, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email right away. In the very same section you can also see and eventually edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
