In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique code, which may be referred to by many 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 owner gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
