Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current registrar. 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 ordinarily comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a hosting account is really easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one and the same place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
