If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email instantly. If you would like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign on the right side of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this information. In case the current email address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
