If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you sign in and to the right 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 get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly 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 notice an EPP sign on the right side of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrars 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 obtain this info. In case the current email address isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
