Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails 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 safety measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different platforms. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can change it with a few clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
