Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from the same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email right away. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup sites.
