Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantly, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS web sites.
