Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud website hosting account is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from the exact same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email straight away. If you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a click, in case you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
