Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP button, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect immediately, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup web sites.
