Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud web hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. In the same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
