Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a shared website hosting account is really easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one and the same place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be located next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address right away. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different user interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
