Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a special domain name 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 unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a cloud hosting account is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from the exact same place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP logo, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.

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 obtain its EPP transfer code with just a click, if you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
