If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified at first is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different Control Panels. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
