Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can get this information. If the currently entered email is not valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
