In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is extremely easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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 several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a different section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP button, 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 registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
