Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved 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 domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater security.

When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can see this information. If the current email address isn’t valid, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
