Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, 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 to make sure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. If the currently listed email address is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain name straight away.
