Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current domain 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 often contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one and the same location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, which will be situated next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address straight away. In case you want to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button next to your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. In case the currently listed address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain right away.
