Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can modify 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 us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single click, in case you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to 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 given generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
