Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from guessing it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only several mouse clicks 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 find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS websites.
