If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is very easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If 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 obtain the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. In case the current address isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain straight away.
