In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.
