In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. In case the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain right away.
