Transferring a domain from one company to another usually entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo on the right side of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this info. In case the current email isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
