In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
