Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a website hosting account is really easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP symbol, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email immediately. In case you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a different section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantly, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS sites.
