Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different systems, since you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
