Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued 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 normally includes digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually update the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can receive this info. In case the current address is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain right away.
