If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process 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 security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain name registrar 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 really easy. You will not have to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from one place – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email immediately. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, on the condition that 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 owner of the domain name can see this info. If the currently entered email is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
