Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a shared hosting account is really easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the exact same location – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
