If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d 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

In case you’ve got a shared hosting packages, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS sites.
