If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the given 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 want, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like 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 go through different admin interfaces. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
