Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a shared hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and eventually edit the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. In case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain straight away.
