Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present 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 traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect straight away, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
