Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It 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 registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared web hosting account is really easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, since you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from one single location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP logo, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email instantly. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can see this info. If the currently entered address is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
