Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared website hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be situated next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. In case you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click 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 send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate right away, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
