If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.

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 code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit 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 particular Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
