If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a few mouse clicks 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 will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide 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 displayed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP logo, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate immediately, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
