Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate immediately, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
