If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a web hosting account is really easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from the very same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email immediately. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP sign on the right side of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this info. In case the current email address is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
