In case you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is really easy. You will not have to switch between different admin panels, since you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP sign next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. If the currently listed address isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
