Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect momentarily, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS sites.
