In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a shared web hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
