Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from guessing it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. If you want to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites.
