Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code 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 because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to switch between different admin interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you will not need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS web sites.
