In case you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just several clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email address is not valid anymore.

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 authorization code with only a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
