If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks from the same section.
