In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
