In case you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
