If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux website hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon to the right of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. In case the currently listed email is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
