Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided 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 usually includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a shared hosting plans, you have registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. 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 with us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. In the same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d 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 go through different admin interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you want 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email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
