In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, 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 supply the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a shared web hosting service, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate straight away, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS websites.
