If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different systems, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect right away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup websites.
