In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. In the same section you can also see and eventually modify the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, if you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
