Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from one place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. If you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one single mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
