Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
