Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
