Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them periodically for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol next to your domain names, provided that their 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 make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this information. In case the current email address is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
