If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP symbol next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the currently listed email is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
