If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.

When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain 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registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
