Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is amazingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different tools, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so if the one that you specified originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different tools. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can change it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
