Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain 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 protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different systems, as you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can modify it with several clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different user interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
