If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is very easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
