If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is extremely easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different systems, since you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.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 name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP icon next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can get this info. In case the current address is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain right away.
