Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin consoles. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can change it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
