If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is really easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from one and the same place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
