Transferring a domain 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 Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with only a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
