Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different systems, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different tools. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with several clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
