Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
