If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email address instantly. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
