Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current registrar. 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 ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup web sites.
