If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, 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 have registered with our company with only several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address isn’t valid any longer.

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 company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
