Transferring a domain from one company to another generally involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers 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 issued by the current domain name 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 frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through us with just a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS sites.
