If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
