Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with 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email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a few clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
