Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved 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 current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is really easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
