If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from a single location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email right away. If you would like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP button to the right of your domain names, on the condition 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 ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this information. In case the currently entered email isn’t valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
