Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique 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 unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a shared web hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from the very same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code domain 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 name. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
