Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers 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 procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, if you decide to move it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the given Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
