Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly 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 security measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered with us with only a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is outdated, you can update it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
