In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. In case the currently entered email isn’t valid, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
