Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is really easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from a single place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In case you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
