Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
