Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a unique authorization 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 security mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is amazingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS sites.
