Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current registrar. 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 includes numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a shared web hosting plans, you have registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just a click, if you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
