Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code 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 company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate right away, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS websites.
