If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present 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, getting its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate straight away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS lookup sites.
