In case you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you have a Linux hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
