Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button next to your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this info. If the current email isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain right away.
