If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup web sites.
