Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. In case the currently entered address isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain straight away.
