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 called by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is stunningly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different platforms, as you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin panels. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
