Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is extremely easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the currently listed email address is not valid, you can update it with several mouse clicks 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 respective domain straight away.
