Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not have to switch between different tools, as you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address instantly. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the given domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
