In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a different section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
