Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. If the currently listed email address is not valid, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain right away.
