In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different platforms, as you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from the exact same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a different section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS sites.
