Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique 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 mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even greater security.

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from the same place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
