Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. 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 often includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting plans, you have registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
