Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection 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 issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a shared website hosting account is very easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from one and the same place – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP sign, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different tools. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can update it with a couple of clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
