In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting packages, you have registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only a click, if you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
