Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts 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 domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some domain registrars even reset 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, getting its EPP code is very easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this information. In case the current email address is not valid, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
