Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from the same place – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email straight away. If you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
