Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique domain authorization 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 unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular 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 registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
