Transferring a domain from one company to another typically involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux hosting service, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the given top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
