Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new 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 obstruct unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is stunningly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from the very same place – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate straight away, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS lookup sites.
