Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special domain authorization 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 measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from guessing it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you have a Linux hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP button next to your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this information. In case the currently entered email is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
