Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click, if you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the given generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
