In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms 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 wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.
