Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers 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 domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to 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 name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
