Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is really easy. You will not have to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address right away. In case you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
