If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is very easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email address, so if the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol next to your domain names, as long as 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 domain name owner can see this info. In case the currently listed email isn’t valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
