If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with only several clicks from the exact 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’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
