Transferring a domain from one company to another typically involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized people from deciphering it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting service, you have registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS lookup sites.
