In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different platforms, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks from the very same section.

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 obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
