If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new company with the right code.

When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address momentarily. In the exact 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’ll see an EPP sign next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. If the current email isn’t valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name right away.
