If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email address, so in case the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you do not have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS websites.
