Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is extremely easy. You won’t have to switch between different interfaces, since you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all active domains the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different systems. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
