Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
