Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the current 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 normally contains digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
