Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from a single place – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, 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 registrant’s email right away. If you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain 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 domain names will be displayed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS websites.
