Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered with our company with only a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, if you decide to transfer it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
