Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a Linux shared web hosting service, you have registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different admin panels. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
