If you want 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 authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a hosting account is extremely easy. You will not have to switch between different tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from one location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. In case the currently entered email address is not valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
