In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is extremely easy. You will not need to switch between different systems, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different Control Panel tools. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
