If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin panels. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
