Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from guessing it. Some companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup websites.
