Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from deciphering it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, since you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP button next to your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. In case the current address isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
