Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email instantly. In the same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect straight away, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
