If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the safety measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is stunningly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP logo, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites.
