Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from cracking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
