Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the current email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
