If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, 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 provide the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP symbol to the right of your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. In case the current email is not valid, you can change it with several 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 code for the specific domain name straight away.
