Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from cracking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not have to switch between different user interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from one single place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In case you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
