In case you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this info. If the currently listed address is not valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
