Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers 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 current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
