If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one click, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
