Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to switch between different user interfaces, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave originally isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS sites.
