Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a shared web hosting account is astonishingly easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, 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 domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS websites.
