Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
