If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case 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 Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email straight away. In the same section you can also see and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
