Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from breaking it. Some companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
