Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP logo next to your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. If the currently listed address is not valid, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
