Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism 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 and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is very easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
