Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different platforms. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with a few clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
