In case you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one single click, if you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click 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 respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
