Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from deciphering it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click, in case you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
