If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from one location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo next to your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this info. If the currently entered address is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
