Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is extremely easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from a single location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different platforms. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with several clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
