If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is amazingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, in case you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
