Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different 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 transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
