Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique transfer 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 safety mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different tools, since you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this info. In case the current address isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
