If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
