In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting service, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP sign to the right of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can see this info. In case the current email isn’t valid, you can update it with several clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
