If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks.

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 code with just a click, if you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the given generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
