Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner 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 started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites.
