Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from guessing it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a Linux hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email instantly. In the same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup web sites.
