Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so in case the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies 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 name can receive this information. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
