Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting, you have registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly get the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different Control Panel tools. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a few clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
