Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case 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 that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just need to click the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect instantly, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup sites.
