Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective 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 dame. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different interfaces. All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
