If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup websites.
