If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different platforms, since you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domains once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks from the same section.
