Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is remarkably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different systems, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different Control Panel tools. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you’d 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the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with several clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
