Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts 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 procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email isn’t valid any longer.

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 code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the given TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
