If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters 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 Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can get this information. If the currently listed email is not valid, you can change it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain right away.
