Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to achieve 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, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
