Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered with our company with only a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. If the current address is not valid, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
