Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique transfer 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 mechanism against unapproved 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 company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a different section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate immediately, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS websites.
