Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique 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 protection mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domains once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate right away, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
