Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is very easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all active domains as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate straight away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS web sites.
