Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
