If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared 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 shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
