Transferring a domain from one company to another usually entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the present domain name 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 normally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you have a Linux hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
