Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer 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 measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign to the right of your domain names, as long as 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 make sure that only the domain name owner can see this info. In case the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain right away.
