Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux hosting plans, you have registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS sites.
