If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP sign next to your domain names, as long as 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 to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. In case the currently entered address isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
