In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
