Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
