If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP sign to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can see this info. In case the currently entered address is not valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name straight away.
