Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer authorization 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 safety mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP logo, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup sites.
