Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts 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 domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one single mouse click, if you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
