If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not have to switch between different admin interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from a single place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In case you would like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just 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 will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into 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 name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
