Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved 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 current domain name registrar company. 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 characters, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is stunningly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can modify it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
