Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different tools, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one single location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email immediately. If you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit 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 respective extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
