Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even better safety.

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud web hosting account is very easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from the very same location – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantly. If you wish to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect immediately, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
