If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
