Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
