Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the very same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email instantly. If you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup web sites.
