Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present registrar. 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 traditionally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is amazingly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you gave initially is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, in case you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
