Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current domain name 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 typically contains numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared hosting, you have registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. In the same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’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 update will take effect momentarily, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
