In case you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only several mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup websites.
