If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll 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 exact same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all active domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you specified originally is no longer valid, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. In case the current email isn’t valid, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain right away.
