In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and gives 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 security measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
