Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting plans, you have registered a domain name through our company and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
