In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a Linux hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it, 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 domain names that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. If the current email is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
