If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect momentarily, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS websites.
