If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is extremely easy. You will not need to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks from the very same section.
