Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from breaking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a web hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this information. In case the current address is not valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
