Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
