In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so in case the one that you shared originally isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect immediately, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
