If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is amazingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. If the currently listed email is no longer valid, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain name straight away.
