In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters 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 correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email address, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol on the right side of 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 address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
