Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP button next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this info. If the currently listed email address isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
