Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the current email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
