Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized people from deciphering it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS sites.
