Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
