If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique transfer code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different systems, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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