Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given 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 frequently includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect straight away, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup sites.
