In case you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
