Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo 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 registrant and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the respective 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 want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin panels. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
