Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click, in case you decide to move it to a different registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log 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 name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
