Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different platforms, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
