If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you just need 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 registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect immediately, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
