In case you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is very easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
