Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from breaking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can see this info. In case the current address is not valid anymore, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name straight away.
