If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with only a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is not valid anymore.
