If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email address right away. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, if you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
