In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is really easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find 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 name owner’s email, so in case the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
