Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from cracking it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. If the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
