Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present registrar. 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 usually comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a click, if you decide to move it to another registrar company. 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 the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
