Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special 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 security measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can receive this information. In case the currently entered address isn’t valid, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name straight away.
