Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain 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 protection mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the respective 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 you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this information. If the currently listed email address isn’t valid, you can change it with a few clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name straight away.
