Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click, if you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
