Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an independent section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS sites.
