Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is very easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from the same location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. In case you’d like to update 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’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
