Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain 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 security measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered with us with only several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS sites.
