If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a Linux hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect right away, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites.
