In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
