In case you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared at first isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. If the currently listed address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
