Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security 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 given domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. 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 comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them periodically for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave originally isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
