In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one single place – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this information. In case the currently entered email address is not valid, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
