If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new registrar with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux website hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. If the currently entered email is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
