Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a special transfer 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 measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is amazingly easy. You will not have to switch between different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
