In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have 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 incredibly 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 will see an EPP logo to the right of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can get this information. In case the currently listed email address is no longer valid, you can modify it with several clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
