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

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can receive this information. If the current email address isn’t valid, you can edit it with several clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
