In case you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with only several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP sign on the right side of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can see this info. If the currently listed email is not valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain name right away.
