If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. In case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
