If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be called by various 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 name registrant gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of 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 company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is very easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all active domains as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
