In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice 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 dame. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS websites.
