Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a hosting account is very easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different platforms, since you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from the very same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP sign, which will be located to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
