If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
