If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer 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 digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS websites.
