Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from guessing it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will notice 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 owner’s email address, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
