Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a shared website hosting plans, you have registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In the same section you can also find and eventually change the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP icon next to your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. If the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain right away.
