In case you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
