Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is extremely easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. In case the current address is not valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
