Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided 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 often contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a cloud website hosting service, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have 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 authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol next to your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain owner can get this information. If the currently entered address is not valid, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
