Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies 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 associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP sign to the right of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. If the currently listed email address is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
