In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
