Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you have a Linux web hosting packages, you have registered a domain name with our company and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click, if you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the given gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
