In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different platforms, as you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
