In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with several clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
