Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved 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 current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a website hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be situated to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In case you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP sign to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this information. If the current email isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
