Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a shared web hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS web sites.
