If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a website hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same place – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
