In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only several clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you do not have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS web sites.
