In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this 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 initially isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, in case you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
