If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared web hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with us shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
