Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily 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 AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present 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 includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized people from deciphering it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is extremely easy. You will not need to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from a single location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. In case the current email isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
