Transferring a domain from one company to another usually entails the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to switch between different admin consoles, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup web sites.
