Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different interfaces. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click 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 registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
