Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click 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 email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup websites.
