Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and eventually change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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 only a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
