If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
