If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is amazingly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, since you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP icon to the right of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this info. If the currently listed email is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
