If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, 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 present the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not need to switch between different interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from a single location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address right away. If you wish to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
