Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a cloud web hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
