In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared web hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
