Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique domain name 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 safety mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar company. 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 generally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
