In case you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button to the right of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can see this information. If the currently listed email is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain straight away.
