In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with several clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
