If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a shared website hosting account is astonishingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address momentarily. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
