Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. 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 characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one single location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email instantly. In case you want to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different tools. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
