Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, if you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
