If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to switch between different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate immediately, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS lookup web sites.
