Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email 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 EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate immediately, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS web sites.
