Transferring a domain from one company to another generally involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info 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 owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting service, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email address right away. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
