In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a shared plans, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP logo next to your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can receive this information. If the currently listed email is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name straight away.
