If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. In case the current email address is not valid any longer, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain right away.
