In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is very easy. You won’t have to switch between different tools, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from the very same location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email instantaneously. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS sites.
