Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the very same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP button to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this information. In case the current address isn’t valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
