In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new company 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’ve registered through our company with just several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.

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 obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
