In case you’d 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 different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP sign on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this info. If the currently entered email is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
