Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
