If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t have to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the exact same place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email straight away. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.
