Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even better safety.

In case you’ve got a hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email straight away. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP sign to the right of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the current email is not valid, you can update it with several clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
