Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique domain name 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 security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared web hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from one single location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

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 code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular top-level 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. You can update the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
