In case you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case 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 Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different platforms, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different systems. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
