If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the very same location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. If you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the given Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
