If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique 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 receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different platforms, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect straight away, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
