If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is extremely easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the same section.
