Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them periodically for better safety.

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared web hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to switch between different interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. In case you wish to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks.
