If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the very 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 shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
