Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special 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 measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD 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 domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is very easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different systems, since you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars 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 can see this info. In case the currently listed email address isn’t valid, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain straight away.
