Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique 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 unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different systems, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect right away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup sites.
