In case you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a Linux hosting, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email instantly. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP sign next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can receive this info. In case the current email is not valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name straight away.
