Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo next to your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can see this information. In case the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain right away.
