Transferring a domain from one company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted 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 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 digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is really easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin panels, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from one single place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. If you want to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one single mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to another registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
