If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is extremely easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different systems, as you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice 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 owner’s email, so if the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code amazingly 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 will notice an EPP button next to your domains, as long as 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 domain owner can obtain this info. If the current email address isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
