If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special 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 one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a Linux website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can receive this info. If the currently entered email isn’t valid, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
