If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
