Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
