Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, since you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol next to your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. If the current address isn’t valid, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
