In case you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP button on the right side 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 to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. In case the current address is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
