In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate 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 initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a Linux shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. If the currently entered address isn’t valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
