In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you would 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 Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In the same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
