If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is no longer valid.

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 authorization code with only one single click, if you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
