Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from guessing it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
