Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
