Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
