Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for greater security.

You will not need to switch between different interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from the very same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, which will be located to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
