In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a 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 includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.
