If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication 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 name owner gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can obtain this information. If the current email address is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
