Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a different section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS web sites.
