Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current 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 generally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from guessing it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them periodically for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is very easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want 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 a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP logo, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS lookup websites.
