Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is amazingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different tools, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all active domains once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one single mouse click, if you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
