If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
