Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is remarkably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
