In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different tools. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with a few clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
