If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from the very same location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be located 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 registrant’s email immediately. If you want to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
