Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily 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 mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to switch between different systems, as you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS sites.
