If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a Linux shared web hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
