In case you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate straight away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS sites.
