Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate straight away, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
