If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to switch between different systems, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can update it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
