Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux hosting packages, you have registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that’s 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 hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a different section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP icon, which will be to the right 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 currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate straight away, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites.
