Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current 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 traditionally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate right away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
