Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email address, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
