Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a special transfer 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 safety measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate straight away, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS websites.
