Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between 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 sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
