Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
