Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a web hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
