If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different tools, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domains once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
