If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is extremely easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you sign 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 tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
