If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect straight away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
