In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be called by different 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 registrant gets from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email instantly. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
