Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is very easy. You will not need to switch between different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
