Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a shared web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, 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 registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address straight away. In the same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol next to your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. In case the currently listed email isn’t valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
