If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP symbol next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the current email isn’t valid, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
