If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater 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 need to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a web hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. In case the current email address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
