Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can modify it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
