If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For 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 need to present the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a Linux website hosting packages, you have registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol next to your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between 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 can see this information. If the current email address isn’t valid, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
