Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a website hosting account is really easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email instantly. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button next to your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this information. In case the current email address is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
