If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from a single location – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click, if you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
