Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It 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 domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
