Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special transfer 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 protection mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You will not need to switch between different platforms, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different admin panels. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with several clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
