Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call 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 generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
