Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique 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 unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only several clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

If the currently entered email address is not valid, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section.
