Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to 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 given domain. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, if you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
