Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud website hosting account is very easy. You won’t have to switch between different interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
