If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a shared service, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an independent section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS web sites.
