In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets 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 procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin consoles. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
