Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites.
