In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will 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 domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
