Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS web sites.
