Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared web hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from a single location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP button on the right side of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can receive this information. In case the current email address is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
