Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them periodically for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud website hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
