Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Some companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not have to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In case you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
