In case you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP symbol next to your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can receive this information. In case the currently listed address is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
