Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails 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 safety measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain name 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 usually contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through us with only several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
