If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different admin consoles. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
